Before we start to hate them, we will actually find them relevant...

  • Like it or hate it advertising is one of cornerstones of the web today. Advertising is paying for a lot of the time and money that goes into creating and publishing content that you see online. Without it, a lot of the "free" web sites that make up so much of the web would eventually disappear.

    If not now, when?

  • Growth of the Mobile Web and Operator Bashing This week saw another very well received Mobile Monday London, on 6 November.
