While at ad:tech New York 2007 I had the opportunity to go to a fabulous party which was hosted at the Soho House by the Internet Oldtimers. The Monday night party was fantastic and the hummus as well as the conversation flew freely. I recognized a few faces, although I have been in the industry for over 10 years however I felt dwarfed in comparison to many of those who surrounded me. My question to a friend’s confident smile was purposeful in its composition, “who are these people?” I whispered, “Who are the Internet Oldtimers?”
