IPG’s Roth Says We’re All Doomed–Well, Sort Of

You have to dig really deep into this Adweek article to see how perceptive Michael Roth is. Here he is speaking at the AAAA Management Conference:

Like the airline and music industries, the ad industry must adapt and evolve with the times, said Roth, who quoted Charles Darwin toward the end of his address: “It’s not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent—but the one who is responsive to change.”

I really hope he’s not inferring that the ad industry should be emulating the airline and music industries. ‘Cause, uh, those would be bad examples.
