Here in the Fourth Reich, I get the New York Times every day… A hard copy, printed in Salt Lake City, and brought to Boise in an Ox driven Mormon covered wagon. Anyway, working my way through Sunday’s edition (It takes me a week to read it) I came across this in one of the letters… “As E. M. Forster wrote more than a century ago in ‘Howard’s End,’ in addressing the shortcomings of universities… Oh yes we have learned men who collect facts, and facts, and empires of facts. But which of them will rekindle the light within?” BIG DATA anyone? If you take George Orwell’s quote at the top of AdScam and combine it with Forster’s, you’ve got a perfect summation of the current fucked up state of the ad biz!
That's not bad, either!
