Donelson to Edit Hamptons Cottages & Gardens This Summer

dec08.jpgNews of people getting jobs has been frequenting our in box less often of late. So much so that when do hear about it we like to share! To wit: Sophie Donelson, frequent mediabistro.com class instructor (and sometime Econo Lodge partner) tells us she is returning to Hamptons Cottages & Gardens for the summer as editor.

Says Sophie: “Back in 2002, HC&G gave me my first job (it was from a MediaBistro listing!) and I worked there for two years with Newell Turner and Lockhart Steele before we all moved on. I’ve been freelancing for them on and off in the in-between years and this summer I was offered the top spot and so I’m returning for the season.” See, there are still nice media stories to be found! (Also our job boards are here).

Manhattan Launched in Manhattan, or, The Six Degrees of Mediabistro.com

manmag.jpgSome of you with ultra sharp memories might recall a post we did last June about Manhattan a new addition to the luxury magazine market, conceived by the folks who are also responsible for Miami. Well, it’s arrived! The launch party for the premiere issue, “Remembrance of Thing Future” was held last night at the Bryant Park hotel, directly across the street from the Bryant Park tents. The fact that the “modern luxury” magazine (free issues were mailed to the 65,000 most affluent households in New York)is also hitting the market the same week the government had to bail out Fannie and Freddie to keep the entire economy from collapsing didn’t appear to throw a wrench into the party atmosphere at all.

Greg Lindsay Lands Book Deal

greg_lindsay_aero.jpgIt appears all those long, sweaty days spent globe-trotting in airports finally paid off: contributing FishbowlNY editor and freelancer du jour Greg Lindsay has finally landed a book deal. Via Publisher’s Weekly:

Paul Elie at FSG bested four other bidders in an auction for Aerotropolis by John Kasarda and Greg Lindsay; agent David Kuhn sold world rights for six figures. The “aerotropolis,” a term popularized by University of North Carolina business professor Kasarda, is a combination of giant airport, planned city, shipping facility and business hub. The book will take a look at this emerging phenomenon, now reshaping life from Dubai to Amsterdam to the D.C. suburbs, to show us how we will live in the near future. Lindsay is a contributor to Fast Company, for which he profiled Kasarda; Lindsay also crisscrossed the globe for three weeks for Advertising Age without ever stepping foot outside an airport.

Lindsay also recently announced his engagement to ex-City magazine executive editor Sophie Donelson. Pretty decent year so far for the lad.
