Well, Here’s Proof that Jeff Goodby Reads AgencySpy

Well, here’s a bit of news that makes us feel all warm and tingly as the week draws to a close. Our pal Stuart Elliot at the New York Times reports that Barbara Lippert, former Adweek scribe, has joined Goodby, Silverstein & Partners as, wait for it, “curator of popular culture.” Yeah, we don’t know what’s up with that title either, but Lippert will nonetheless serve as the agency’s “part trend-hunter and part agency ambassador” according to Jeff Goodby, who apparently got wind of her Adweek situation from, yep, AgencySpy.

Here’s an excerpt: “Ms. Lippert, in a separate phone interview, said that she was contacted by Mr. Goodby last month after he ‘read on Agency Spy that I was fired,’ referring to the industry blog that is published by Media Bistro.” Hey, we can’t complain about the shout-out and we’re just glad things worked out for Barbara. Oh yeah, and thanks for reading, Jeff!
