Alley Mogul Founds Alley Rag

For ex-Doubleclick CEO Kevin Ryan running four start-ups wasn’t enough, so he co-founded a fifth: Silicon Alley Insider.  “New York’s tech industry is on fire,” Ryan says.  “We deserve our own trade rag.”

Ryan’s co-founders include Dwight Merriman, the former Doubleclick executive, and Henry Blodget, the former Wall Street analyst and Eliot-Spitzer-punching bag.  Asked whether Blodget’s controversial past was a concern, Ryan responded, “Dwight chained the computers to the desks, so we feel fine.”
