Rafat Ali strikes again in NYC! A winter encore to his first NYC event in the summer, Ali’s paidContent “mixer” formula “mixed-up” the right amount of party, business and content in the heart of Manhattan last night.

I arrived at the the TNewYork lounge for the scheduled start-time of 6pm, the new media crowds were already streaming in, big time. 

Jeff Jarvis was also a punctual arrival, bravely partying on, despite his “bubble” party fears of last June (see “paidContent's 'blowout' NYC mixer: Internet bubble redux, or new rational entrepreneurship?”)

 

Last June, party “content” was in the form of a Q & A with The New York Times’ Arthur Suzlberger (see "The New York Times Company has the 'dough' online"), last night the promised party “content” was in the form of Gordon Crovitz, DowJones (see “Crovitz on WSJ: 80-20 editorial rule in 2007”).
