George Parker of Adscam, one of the industry’s most scathing commentators, has done a piece for PSFK on ad Industry blogs. You can read it here. I’m delighted to say that Welcome to Optimism is cited amongst ‘Ad Blogs that don’t suck’. George says ‘Most ad agency blogs are pathetic efforts that transparently shill on behalf of bean-counter management. Weiden & Kennedy, London, doesn’t do that, and isn’t afraid to take the piss out of itself’.
On behalf of bean counter management I can tell you that if you’ve read any of George’s pieces about ad agencies you’ll realise that this is high praise indeed. So, in return I can recommend Adscam as a consistently provocative and amusing point of view on the pomposities and perversities of the Business of Ad.
