Pace Media group is folding online advertising industry (read: win a free ipod) mouthpieces AdBUMb, 92.5 and NewMediaReport into one site called "Adotas." Preview the new site, debuting late Jan '06 here. Gotta love the pervasive pictures of Missy Ward and Shawn Collins of
CPAempire (the affiliate network owned by spam king Scott Richter) Affiliate Summit looking like they bought a banner ad for their wedding announcement. According to the mockup, Adotas will feature such scintillating articles as "Podcasting: Fantastic Future or Fizzling Fad?" and "The Lighter Side of Buying Ad Space" and cutting into the meat of the interactive advertising industry with incisive commentary like, "Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium doloremque laudantium." Pace sales guy Ron Cummings the Second told me that if I act now, I can get 400k impressions for only $20,000, a $47,500 value. Furthermore, he said "Since we are both located in New York let me know what kind of food you like and
I can meet you for a lunch meeting." Ron, my favorite food is green spam and eggs. I look forward to looking forward to meeting you for a meeting at lunchtime. UPDATE: Pesach, owner of Pace Media Group, just made a threatening call to get this post removed. He is concerned this post implies Pace is a spammer. If this post is not removed, he will call my boss and get me fired. That's the power of blogs. They enable tongue-in-cheek remarks to anger people who take them too seriously at a rate faster than ever before possible. UPDATE 2: In an email sent to myself, my boss and CPAempire, Pesach declares this post "LIBELOUS and FALSE" and asks, "What do you guys have against us, or against anyone else -- including CPAEMPIRE,
AffilaiteSummit and Scott Ricther?" [sic]. You'd think people would show free advertising more gratitude.
