There are too many ads on the internet.
We’ve had sold so much we have sold everything.
Go to http://www.nba.com and you don’t get basketball. You get a little basketball and a violent assault of ads.
Go to http://www.nytimes.com and you don’t get The Times. You get The Times hidden in the midst of a barrage of ads.
Been to Facebook lately? The. Whole. Thing. Is. Ads.
Much has already been written about Google and ads. (Hint: YOU are the product, the advertisers are Google’s customer.)
Amazon’s Kindle is now ad-supplemented.
Selling ads is not as profitable as selling a product. But it certainly scales. Just sell more ads. And then more.
It’s not going to stop. And it’s already too much. What happened? What have we sold?
