Gotta be out today. Let me leave you with some excellent posts…

Complex System Of Pipes – Pop Goes The Ego

The UK Today – The Blogger’s New Stats

… and the following thought from the mind of a paranoid obsessive:

So Iain Dale is launching a new magazine for the political classes. If he’s to gain ground on the print advertising front, he needs to play down the importance/significance of The House Magazine and publisher Dods (example).

Now take a look at how the online advertising outfit MessageSpace communicates their claims of importance/dominance in the ads that run when they don’t have any paying ads to speak of:

The House Magazine falling into rubbish bin (David Cameron version)

The House Magazine falling into rubbish bin (Gordon Brown version)

One of life’s happy little accidents, no doubt.

After all, it’s not as if Dale and Staines collude on any of this.

    They've been running that advert for months, if not years. I just think it's ironic that after trashing (in both ways) print media they are sending out unsolicited print media to people. Print. It's the future, you know…

    Heh.Oh, and those ads were uploaded on the 29th of October, 2007. A couple of weeks before 18DoughtyStreet 'expanded' out of existence:https://www.bloggerheads.com/archives/2007/11/iain
