Camera only managed to capture 5% of our empire

From left: 
Philip Kor — Producer (i.e. champion of Google Docs, odd-job laborer)
Jason Chan — Videographer (i.e. the man with the cam)
Alvina Collardeau — Co-founder and Editor-in-Chief (i.e. the boss)
Zoe Woodbury — Features Editor (i.e. voicemail and Wordpress extraordinaire; “it’s relaxing”)  
(missing from photo)
Kimmy Ratican — Writer/Producer (i.e. gets to meet famous people)
…and the other 95% of the empire. 

 

Start-up world looks at Wall Street; tries not to laugh.

It seems the start-up community feels pretty insulated from the crisis on Wall Street. According to this article in the NY Times, there is sufficient funding, the credit markets have not affected lending, and many venture-backed companies are not dependent on the financial services or housing industries. 

But that’s just all big media news: what’s really happening on the grounds in Silicon Valley? Happy, jolly Google engineers are giving their engineering-labmates-turned-investment-banker friends a call: “Well, I hope investment banking has been ‘more challenging’, ‘multi-faceted’, ‘real world’, and ‘human facing’ all these years. Really hoped you saved some of your bonus for the months ahead. By the way, don’t bother dropping your resume with us: we require at least 3-5 years of coding experience.”

We are alive!

I know it has been quite a while.

Things have been ramping up quite a bit here OnTheInside — we have added staff, scheduled a packed pipeline of personalities, and been exploring partnerships with big name publishers.

But who cares about all that magazine stuff, right? The most important development has got to be the relaunch of this blog: Here to bring you the Insides of OnTheInside! (…plus some tech news, and a little New York).

To whet your appetite, here are some big names we would be featuring in the coming weeks. Look out for their full interviews on this blog.

Giorgio De Luca, of Dean & DeLuca fame who, with business partner Joel Dean, single-handedly imagined the gourmet supermarket industry with the opening of their first SoHo store in 1977, which eventually turned into a hundred million dollar business. They understood New Yorkers’ better taste for fine grocery way before subsequent faux-organic supermarket chains, with their tacky decor that says Disneyland more than farmer’s market, popped up all over the city over the past decade.

Carmen del’Orifice, longest serving model at Ford Agency, who in her 70s, still models for clients like Rolex. She has been modelling since she was 14 and carries herself with an air of untouchable elegance and grace. Yet, she comes across as a most warm and humble person during our interview with her. Carmen had some riveting stories to tell of her childhood, and I cannot wait for her interview to be published (also because I was the one that had to transcribe the 3 hour long interview). 

Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia. Visionary and evangelist for “free knowledge”, Jimbo, as people call him, currently owns and runs the non-profit company Wikia, a website that hosts a variety of individual wikis on different subjects. Constantly fighting the controversy surrounding the reliability and use of Wikipedia, Jimmy takes a breather with us, as he tells us about his favorite places to hang out in New York. I’m curious: Do you think he ever goes to the New York Public Library?

Some quickie recommendations!

Hello all,

I’m Zoe, the Features Editor here at On The Inside. I moved to the city in 2005 to study psychology at NYU, where I expect to graduate in May 2009. I grew up in Austin, Texas, but now I call it’s analagous Brooklyn neighborhood, Williamsburg, home. Hopefully, we will be getting some staff picks up on the site soon; in the meantime, however, here is my quick and dirty guide to my ‘hood…

 

 

 

For barbecue to-die-for… Fette Sau (354 Metropolitan Ave)
For cheap vintage finds… Beacon’s Closet (88 N.11th St)
For a weekend dance party… Royal Oak (594 Union Ave)
For artsy nightlife… Zebulon (258 Wythe Ave.)
For weekend brunch… Diner (85 Broadway)
For cheap falafel… Oasis (161 N.7th St)
For DIY shows and dancing… Death by Audio (49 S.2nd St)
For amazing sushi… Bozu (296 Grand St)

…and of course, my favorite place in Williamsburg, my house. But I can’t tell you where that is…

xoxo
Zoe
