Help me win a wager on podcasting.

PodcastFilter- My co-worker thinks that podcasting is just a fad and that a year from now this "craze" will have passed. I think she's wrong and have wagered her on it. What independent third party source can we use to measure how wrong she is? [more inside]

Stop the circulars

Isn't there any way to permanently block delivery of unaddressed junk (USPS) mail? The post office insists on cramming increasingly thick stacks of "Occupant", "Resident", etc mail into the box every day and it's become ridiculous. [more inside]

Evil companies and smily clip art

Has anyone noticed a link between a megacorp's poor customer service and tons of "smily happy people" clip art on their ads and websites? I've been noticing a strong connection, to the extent that it's a warning flag for me not to do business with them. Am I imagining it or do they all do this?

How to Suceed with Adbrite?

I recently put Adbrite on my blog. But no advertisers have signed up in one month. I reduced the price every week for a text ad from $30 to $10 per week now for a good location in the sidebar. For 2000+ pageviews per day, is it too much to ask for? Many sites with lesser page views and higher rates are full of Adrite advertisers. What is the secret of making money with Adbrite?

Where to advertise to IT sales/marketing people?

We need to do some online advertising and PR, on a just-above-shoestring budget, directed at people responsible for selling new information technology products. The minimum for a text ad from publishers like Ziff-Davis and CMP's TechWeb seems to be well over $2,000 per insertion. We'd like to spend less than that, so maybe we're looking for more obscure publications.

Web ad overview

So I'm getting ready to launch my own family-friendly, general interest, community discussion site, and I'm hoping to generate at least partial support from displaying ads on my site. I poked around a bit on Google's Adsense site, but does anybody know of a good intro/overview/ratings of the various options I may have available to me?

Is Blogads profitable?

Does anyone have experience with Blogads? I've been approached to join their ad program in which I'd place ads from their network of advertisers on my blog in exchange for a share of the profits. My blog gets about 700 hits per day (on a good non-Slashdotted day). Can a blog as small as mine be profitable with Blogads? Are Blogads's business dealings fair and above the table? Are Blogads's ads so annoying that most people in-the-know block them with Adblock etc.? Basically, is Blogads a good idea for my blog?

Red and Yellow Logos

Why are all of the logos for major fast food chains red and yellow? Is this psychological, readable, an offshoot of McDonalds? The ones I have seen are McDonalds, Carl's, Wedy's, Burger King, In and Out, Sonic, KooKooRoo - I'm trying to find one that is not yellow/red.

The beautiful music of B2B commerce

Business today is beautiful! Sprint is in here, Sprint is in there, Sprint is everywhere! This commercial aired every week this summer during Meet The Press and I miss it. I find myself getting disappointed and depressed during every Meet The Press commercial break now because I may never hear that wonderful song again. I’ve been unable to find it posted online anywhere, only message board & blog posts celebrating it (or sometimes wrongly suggesting it’s terrible.) I’d love to find a video of the commercial or an MP3 of the song. [more inside]

NYC: In a city where advertising posters of all kinds regularly get defaced, sometimes to reveal the latent cultural politics, sometimes just for the humour of it, why does it seem like all of the NYC2012 Olympic Bid posters remain 100% pristine? (For those outside of the area, these are an extremely prolific series of posters presenting various pithy phrases in colored text over black.)

Photorealistic Billboards

I often walk past artists painting/airbrushing photorealistic billboards on the sides of buildings. Talent aside, how do they do this? I would imagine that an original image would be projected onto the building, and then traced, but how do they avoid image distortion if the environment doesn't allow for a perfect straight-on projection? Do they project an already-distorted original onto the wall?

Who made this PBS commercial?

I love some of the commercials for PBS. There is one playing currently that is constructed around the story of Little Red Riding Hood's wolf. Philip Glass' music from The Hours is throughout, a father is reading the story to his daughter, then gets interrupted by Lara Spencer, Charlie Rose ("In my interview with the wolf, he said he does his own stunts to add more realism to the story"), Jim Lehrer, Bernadette Peters and a couple others who I don't know, who all have comments about the wolf. Is this commercial available online? Does anyone know who made this?
