Blogging Bridges

Shawn Waite’s Shedwa Six–a six question interview series with ad geeks and bloggers–this week features Ariel Waldman from Shake Well Before Use.
I find this exchange interesting:

S: What impact, if any, do you think blogs serve in the ad community?
AW: I find that blogs have really broken down the barriers between competing agencies over time. Rather than operating in isolated pods, we’re sharing ideas and networking on a broader scale with our competitors, and it only makes the ad community stronger.

I have to concur. AdPulp has served as an introduction to a bunch of ad peeps I wouldn’t otherwise know.
Speaking of, I’ll be in Austin starting tonight and all next week for SXSW. If you’re there and want to meet up in person, email me at dburn @ adpulp dot com.
