The blog is changing

Everything else changes, so why not this blog? Plus I'm getting kinda sick of the name and colors. So be on the lookout - a new blog is coming!

Electronic Tearsheets - WTF?

Just a quick rant about electronic tearsheets. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, here's the deal. When you buy advertising in a print vehicle, it is common for us media buyers to require proof that it ran correctly. This means that the magazine or newspaper has to physically tear out a copy of the ad and send it to us (hence the name 'tearsheet').

I don't mean to pick on my favorite newspaper ever, but the Savannah Morning News has decided that electronic tearsheets are an acceptable substitute for the real thing. They think that they can just sent me a pdf of their newspapers layout and that I should have faith that my ad ran correctly. This is such bullshit. Seriously. SMN, great way to reduce the number of makegoods!

Ok, breathe. I'm done now. Just had to use my blog to publicly vent.

It's here again...Christmas Party Pics

Once again, Kidd Group has hosted an unbelievable soirée for it's talented staff (props to us). I personally believe that the health of an organization is reflected in how cool their holiday party is (like many of my beliefs, this is not rooted in any sort of factual information). This years theme was "A Red Carpet Affair" and I think the pictures really speak for themselves...

Facebook Screws Up Again

Will my beloved time-killer ever learn? First news feeds, then the Beacon ad system. Zuckerberg, here's a bit of advice: this is a social network. It belongs to its members. Don't violate their privacy!
