Kris must not realize that everyone’s a creative director today. That customers often know how to make better ads than the client, or god forbid, the client’s ad agency of record.
Pardon me, I’ll work on the sarcasm.
In the meantime, distinctions between citizens media and mainstream media are blurring, along with distinctions between blogs and p.r., content and advertising, advertising and entertainment, etc.
