I haven’t had a chance to try this yet, but Google just release a Google Earth plugin for US election info. From their release: Today Google Earth celebrates the election season with the launch of the 2006 Google Earth Election Guide. Conceived by Google Earth engineers who found it difficult to find aggregated election information […]

Okay, the $100 dog’s not here yet, but the salmon dog is, and the $25 dog, according to a USA Today article (thanks for the link, Dr. Adelglass). Give it time – someone will make a $100 hot dog as a great PR stunt, like the $1,000 omelette. A few will eat it, but many […]
Ben & Jerry’s took over a historic bank (and now theater) in Union Square for two weeks to promote its new milkshake flavors, with tasting stations and some nooks to sit and enjoy them. (Click the photos for a closer look.) At first I thought the bank-theater was now a Ben & Jerry’s – no […]

He’s close to the most important point but doesn’t get there or quite spell it out: Big Pharma’s in need of tapping into the long tail. We’re seeing signs of life on the long […]
I didn’t quite get what MediaPost meant when it referred to "plug-ins." It turns out to be a reference to advertising on airport electrical outlets. Thomas Edison + New Media = Outletvertising. Oy. Link: MediaPost Publications – Plug-In Promos – 06/27/2006.
"Rocky and Bullwinkle," once $1.99 an episode, is now free on Google Video. The ad sponsorship model offers a text ad permanently atop the video, rather than the standard pre-roll deal. I still don’t get why consumers would pay that much for a lot of these videos. Granted, a lot of this content would otherwise […]
Thanks to the new widgets from TypePad (maybe they’re not so new; maybe I just never figured out how to use them before), I now have a few new bells and whistles on the blog. My personal favorite: FeedBlitz, at the top right. You can subscribe to this blog, and any other blog using it, […]
In the past couple days, I’ve seen Moses surface in two unexpected ways: 1) AskMoses.com, the live-chat Q&A site to get instant answers to all things Jewish, just launched an SMS service. 2) On YouTube, a video mashup of The Ten Commandments with a high school movie theme. Good, wacky fun, and it also explains […]
