Five years ago today we started posting articles to this site.
I could reflect on all we’ve learned, or all I’ve learned as a writer, editor and ad man, but that kind of thing doesn’t make for much of a celebration. Instead, I hereby raise the AdPulp glass to all who come here regularly to share your thoughts with the community (in the comments) and with us (in emails).
I especially want to thank our best friends. Thanks so much for being here Vinny Warren, Steffan Postaer, Amy Hoover, Rick Myers, Tom Asacker, Matt Bergantino, Wade Sturdivant, High Jive, Alan Wolk, Sally Hogshead, Todd Davidson, Bob Hoffman, George Parker, Amber Case, Renny Gleeson, John January, Marc Babej, Chris Rock, Chris Maley, Jay Roth, Court Crandall, Spike Jones, Ian Schafer, Bill Green, Faris Yakob, Todd Anthony, The Denver Egotist, Jerry Ketel, Daniel Timothy Wood, Tom Bennett, Mason West, Brian Harrison, G.B. Veerman, Matt Ingwalson, John Winsor, Cathy Taylor, Brian Morrissey and many many others.
And no cheers would be complete without a nod to our families and friends who consistently offer support, often in the form of typos caught.



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 head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
