Yesterday I found a mysterious mkv file in my Azureus downloads folder. I opened it and it turned out to be an advert for Intel. I promptly deleted it but it showed up again the next day. Has Intel started putting adverts in bittorrent files?

PPC, CPM, SEO, SEM, Ad Buy, Advertising and Marketing Filter: My Company is now making a big push into email marketing and lead and customer nurturing. We bought “Eloqua” to do this, and I am charged with the implementation. Since I want to "add the most value" I can, I am looking for resources (especially blogs, but books are good too) that are well respected, and that can help me get up to speed with my understanding of industry parlance, technique, best practices, theory, and execution of online advertising and marketing in all its forms (We are going to be making a push into search engine marketing as well). So far I have read "The Long Tail" and "Digital Body Language" I am also interested in keeping up with industry news and events, as well as new technologies and implementations.

Looking for digital ad strategy graduate programs in NYC.

Recently I've thought of a great idea for a website which I'm planning on developing soon. I believe the site has the potential of something like YouTube or Facebook. Due to my paranoia and low budget, I've decided to develop the site myself. I believe no one has the capacity or resources to copy the site for at least a fortnight. Due to the low budget Im having to resort to spreading the word over the net. Unfortunetly I cannot reveal what the site is about :( I was just wondering if anyone knows of any descent sites or forums that are pretty general, where I could post my idea? so i can reach as many people as possible within a fortnight. P.S. Please don't say Youtube or Facebook... lol

Advertising folks: So, you’re a strategic planner! Or, you work at a digital agency! I’d like to get some thoughts and advice from you. I’m not extraordinarily unhappy in my current job.

So, I’m hoping some of you can answer some questions that will help make this decision easier. [more inside]

I have noticed that TV ads for prescription drugs that feature actors directly addressing you always (?) have the voice track lip-synched. The audio is obviously different from what would have been recorded originally, and this seems to be consistent. Why is this? A friend suggested this somehow avoids some FDA regulation about endorsing drugs. This is in the USA.
VideoID Filter: Help me find an online video from about a year ago that "highlighted" all of the advertisements in a city. All of the ads were white and everything else was black (or the other way around?). It really illustrated how surrounded by consumerism we are.
