Robert Ferber's booming, rueful laugh measures his emotional progress since he learned the money he invested with Bernard Madoff was gone. He's no longer losing sleep. He's counting his blessings, reducing exposure to the stock market and concentrating on running his small cargo logistics company. Still, much of what he worked for over many years is gone. He won't say how much, except that it's a "significant" part of his worth and "the impact hurts." Ferber founded and sold CarFinance.

After discreetly disappearing from Advertising.com more than a year ago, 33-year-old founder and former chief product officer John Ferber has emerged in Florida with a string of new ventures - including an online "popularity" pageant where viewers can vote for their choice for "Miss Internet 2008." At first glance, it's not exactly what one might expect from the one-time Owings Mills whiz kid, who built a wildly successful Baltimore company based on game technology he created in college, then sold it to AOL for $435 million.

Imagine this: You fall asleep, cozy and warm, in your own bed. Several hours later, you awake, as you do most nights, but you're sprawled out on the living room floor without a clue as to how you got there. You drag yourself back to bed, only to find yourself in the living room again a few hours later.Disconcerting? You bet.This, says a doctor, is similar to how a baby must feel who has fallen asleep safely rocking in his mother's arms only to awaken naturally a few hours later alone in his crib.

Baltimore-based Advertising.com Inc. laid off 72 of its 287 employees yesterday, about 25 percent of its work force, most of whom worked at its Tide Point headquarters. "Our decision was based on achieving profitability sooner," said Scott Ferber, co-founder and chief executive officer of Advertising.com. "The industry is changing rapidly. We needed a skill set slightly changed from what we needed before." The staff reduction, coupled with a second year of consistent revenue growth and more than $50 million in funding secured in 2000 from strategic partners, will strengthen the company's business position for this year and beyond, company officials said.

SCOTT A. FERBER is almost frantic. He has lost the little plastic cap to his ChapStick and it is eating away at him. He scans the floor, looks over the black overstuffed chairs and couch, then roots through a garbage can. This from a man who could afford to buy a lifetime supply of ChapStick for all of Baltimore. "Geez," sighs the 35-year-old chief executive of Advertising.com. Nine months ago, he and brother John B. Ferber, 31, sold the Locust Point company they founded to media giant America Online Inc. for $435 million in cash, a startling shift in their plans to take the company public.
