Legendary ad man Gene DeWitt passed away Thursday after a long battle with cancer. (Fuck cancer.) Gene was a media guru and in the past few years had joined the ranks of bloggers taking on media and ad trends on his Media Age blog. Blogger Social 2008 was so fortunate to have him with us at our "formal" Saturday night dinner - this is Gene in my tiara giving me a "la ti da" after Drew, CK and I handed out awards. He laughed and said "You don't see a lot of gals in tiaras these days." Gene's humor and smarts will be missed by so many, most especially by his family. Sending hugs to all.
