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.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
