The stage was a private roof garden overlooking Rockefeller Center and the set was the Founders Club’s invitation-only fete, part of Internet Week New York’s schedule of events. The backdrop was a painted sky with stunning views of midtown’s finest architectural treats – Saint Patricks Cathedral, The New York Times Building, Empire State Building, and Central Park.
The cast of characters included Jimmy Fallon, Barry Diller, Dan Allen, Tim Armstrong, Rupert Murdoch, Jeff Zucker, Gerrit Meier, Nina Zagat, Ted Zagat, Wendi Murdoch, Jared Kushner, Josh Kushner, Maxine Friedman, Daniel Klaus, Lindsay Campbell, Constantin Bjerke, Gary Vaynerchuk, "Rocky Van Veen", Joe Robinson, Cathy Riva, Eileen Naughton, Dina Kaplan, Graham Hill, and Nancy Juvonen.
As the Manhattan skyline glowed behind a sea of party guests, Barry Diller welcomed AOL executive Tim Armstrong and News Corp.’s new digital head Jon Miller to the event. Attendees listened to the melodious sounds from the live jazz trio and enjoyed an open bar featuring organic vodka cocktails.
