Seventeen‘s Ann Shoket on Her Role in the Launch of Mediabistro

Ann Shoket is no stranger to this thing called the Internet. Before becoming editor-in-chief of Seventeen, she published her own e-zine, launched CosmoGirl! online, and suggested to mediabistro.com founder Laurel Touby that she launch a media community web site.

Although she calls her time as an entrepreneur “fun and interesting,” Shoket says the Web actually hasn’t changed much since 1996. “We didn’t make a dime, and we spent an incredible amount of time in all sorts of silly pursuits.”

Uh, yeah. Pretty much sounds like today.
