Schwag Watch – Advertising Week

Of all the subjects to tackle relating to Advertising Week currently underway in New York, this blog needs to focus on the most important: the schwag.

Dsc01700_1At OMMA East, where I spent the entire day, the winner among my colleagues and I were the ContextWeb mini Rubik’s Cubes.

Dsc01705Then, thanks to Scott Delea’s invite, I made it to DigitalGrit’s soiree on W46th with live piano music, where I saw quite a few familiar faces and met a bunch of their friends. The giveaway: flasks. That could come in handy for Tuesday night… or perhaps at 4:30, when I have my OMMA session on local search (Scott and I can clink flasks beforehand, as he’s on the panel).

Dsc01699_1The final stop was China Club for Batanga’s Latin music party. I got there on the early side before the crowd really showed up, but it was a very hospitable bunch, and I had the pleasure of catching up with Accuquote’s Sean Cheyney and his colleague Teresa. I left there with a goodie bag that included a CD, two pens, earphones, and two t-shirts.

    Thanks for the mention, David! I’m so glad that (a) someone else calls it “schwag” rather than “swag” and that (b) you’ve posted such a flattering photo of the DG flask.
    Please note that DigitalGrit recommends that you drink (and moderate panels) responsibly.

    Election day is the freedom of choice of everyone of us who can lead the change in the society that hopefully Barrack Obama can be lead us truly change for everybody not only for the benefits of few.
    Election Day has come and passed, and America has chosen Barack Obama and the prospect of change in the USA. It is obvious that change is going to come, but the question is going to be whether or not that change is for good or ill. America believes that he will bring a good change to this country. Obama has promised many things, such as lower taxes on the middle class, a timeline for withdrawal from Iraq, and a “line by line” trim of the federal budget. What many people do not know is that Obama is for the eradication of the payday loan industry. He believes that eliminating the industry will be a protective measure for low-income families and minorities, by protecting them from predatory lenders, which would only really be protecting America from freedom of choice in our finances. Obama may be bringing change, but hopefully not change from the freedom of payday loans as an alternative with dealing with the banks and credit card companies that got us into the mess we got into in the first place.
