Back to the Alley: 5 Years After
A Refresh on the Dot-Com Darlings of New York’s Silicon Alley

Monday, December 13, 2004
Doors open: 6:30 pm
Michael Schimmel Theater @ Pace University
3 Spruce Street, between Park Row and Gold Street
(near the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge)

RSVP Required: pga-ny@producersguild.org

In 1999, the soaring valuations and unlimited aspirations of several high-profile,
New York-based interactive agencies and new media companies vaulted the names of heretofore unknown designers, executives, and journalists to media superstar status.

Now, five years after the apex of Silicon Alley’s Internet bubble mania, a refresh of Silicon Alley in the late-’90s with some of its leading lights, including:

Moderator, Jason McCabe Calacanis, former editor and founder of Silicon Alley Reporter magazine.


  • Nicholas Butterworth, former president & CEO, MTVi

  • Jeffrey Dachis, CEO/chairman of Studio Holdings (former CEO/co-founder of Razorfish)

  • Dan Pelson, former CEO & co-founder, Bolt.com

  • Kevin Ryan, CEO, DoubleClick

Presented by the Producers Guild of America (PGA) East, NATAS, the Pace University Center for Advanced Media, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, “Back to the Alley: 5 Years After” will examine what the interactive media industry looks like in New York today; what lessons were learned from the late-’90s (and, more importantly, how they are being applied to today’s work), and what the individual “dot-com darlings” are doing with their precious nanoseconds in late-2004.

Don’t miss the first retrospective industry event to examine the Silicon Alley community of 1999. Click to www.producersguild.org for ticket information and updates.
