The first company to emerge from the ECompanies Internet business incubator will be unveiled today. EParties will build a Web site where party planners can get ideas on themes, generate e-mail invitations, keep track of RSVPs, buy supplies and create a gift registry. David Haddad, former president of Mattel Media, the toy giant's software division, will become chief executive of the new company. Planning a party online at a party portal site "is a better consumer proposition," Haddad said.
