ad-tech, New York.

Went to ad-tech, New York last week. Did my solo session again. This time I was introduced by Barbara Coll, no less. Very nice!

I left my camera on my office desk in Newcastle, so no pics. The one above is a shot I took of the Chrysler Building from the top of the Empire State Building when I was in Noo Yawk last year with Tatiana. I just felt I had to put something there.

Met up with my great buddies Jim Sterne and Larry Chase. Hung around a lot with my long time pal Barry Lloyd…and had dinner three record breaking nights in a row with the one and only, the inimitable, Kevin Ryan.

Had dinner with my great friend and boss at ClickZ, Rebecca Lieb. And joined the permanently effervescent Susan Bratton (whom I absolutely adore) as she whisked me off to a couple of show parties for the odd free glass of vino.

Later that night, Barry Lloyd and I went to the gentlemen’s repair known as the Carnegie Club. Here in the swish surroundings, waitresses in little black cocktail numbers, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn, pour drinks and serve cigars the size of bananas. Jazz is in the air… and smoke is everywhere. The following day, I took the clothes I was wearing the night before and burned them. No washing powder would ever get rid of the deep, dark cigar smoke embedded in them forever.

Still, all-in-all, it was smashing!

Actually, I thought I’d spend a little time sitting in my Newcastle office as there was a break in my travel schedule. But, instead, I’m heading off to Hong Kong and Xiamen in China again. So, looks like I’ll miss Webmasterworld Conference, unfortunately.

Best of luck to Brett. I hope you have a fantastic show. And best to all the speakers…I hope you all have gallons to drink… nothing usually stops you 🙂

Oh, and thank you to my dear friends, Inway, RQ and Jon in Xiamen, for giving me my Chinese name.
I’m most honoured. See you soon.
