Lucy Danziger

Lucy Danziger, the editor in chief of Self, has a lot in common with the Winklevii, Tyler and Cameron, the start-up investors and famous Facebook litigants. Harvard, rowing, summers in the Hamptons — Bellport for her, Quogue for them — they are breathing avatars of WASP culture. But somehow they hadn’t crossed paths at the annual meetings. They only met last year, introduced by a mutual friend, the entrepreneur Mitch Thrower.

“I just immediately gravitated towards them. I also started out in the athletic world and eventually became interested in worlds outside my immediate circle,” said Danziger.

Lucy Danziger, Editor-in-Chief of Self magazine, says she loves it when “someone comes into a meeting and says ‘I have an idea.’ That’s where it starts,” she says. “That’s the ‘at bat.’”

Larry Hackett, Managing Editor of People, was elected president of the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) at the annual meeting of the organization on Tuesday, April 20, 2010.
