DailyDirt: Ads Gone Wild

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Advertising is a fascinating topic. When ads are done well, the content is usually good enough to stand alone without trying to market a product. Who wouldn’t want to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony? But it’s not easy to create really great and memorable ads. Maybe it’s an ancient Chinese secret, huh?

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

I may be veering a bit from the gist of this article, however, it is my belief that politicians have not yet recognized this “free advertising” nature of the Internet — e.g., while Barack Obama may have garnered $10 million dollars in contributions from “Hollywood”, how significant will that ultimately be if it incurs the wrath of the web a la “the Streisand effect”? Maybe we aren’t there yet, but (hopefully) will be soon.
