  • Publicis prioritizing investment is super smart. Nothing to be gained from investing in Cannes. Way over priced ,
  • Cannes this year is both shallow and disappointing. Some ok content but overly commercial and no CMO agenda ,
  • Shares in Cannes Lions' owner fall as Publicis pulls out and WPP voices doubts ,
  • All marketing arcs lead to membership. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Sharing = currency of communications. The system (social media) carries the currency and enables transactions . @Cannes_Lions,
  • Better never stops @Cannes_Lions,
  • Love the power of great brands + great artists + great institutions being drawn together by the artist ,
  • Yup ,
  • Unification of Unilever marketing org means better control over assets - less duplication/volume and more localization @Cannes_Lions,
  • Keith makes a fair point on reach - is about reaching those you haven't reached. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Creativity is last source of competitive advantage. Maybe... ,
  • Unstereotyped ads perform 25% better. a convenient number? but just the same a powerful point if even 5% better. @keithweed,
  • Brand safety and suitability go hand in hand. Some progress made but way to go. @keithweed,
  • Time to tackle the bots. Rip the ad fraud out. No such thing as cheap media. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Must count 100% of pixels as a view. Not 50% and not less. Need for 3rd party verification @Cannes_Lions,

Oh Dear…

New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer has landed in hot water after his campaign paid Google to link searches for "AIG" to a website — www.spitzer2006.com — promoting his bid for governor. "Somebody didn’t use good judgment," his office said. "It isn’t appropriate to do this with something like the ongoing AIG investigation." Yeah, that would be right.

The link was taken down after media inquiries yesterday, Financial Times reported.

Apparently while busy probing Wall Street and the insurance industry, Washington Post reported Mr. Spitzer eked out enough time to raise $7.9 million for his planned 2006 run for governor.

As the saying goes, nobody is perfect. But maybe he’s just showing us the power of using the web to raise funds from the masses while taking on the powerful?
