We're lucky to work for an advertising agency that understands when employees have to stay home on days like today when the weather makes it too dangerous for some of us to travel. The Midwest is in the middle of a huge snowstorm, but thanks to technology, we're able to check email from home and stay connected to our work and clients.
Speaking of technology, Adweek's last online poll of 2007 asked respondents this question: What was the biggest media/marketing story of 2007? I'm surprised that only 29 percent of respondents voted for Facebook and the rise of social networks. Another 27 percent answered the launch of the iPhone.
I would think Facebook should have the majority of the opinion. And I'm wondering if every move Steve Jobs makes is going to be hailed as the greatest thing since sliced bread.
In case you're wondering, other responses to the poll were things like the Hollywood writers' strike at 10 percent and commercials as content, 4 percent.
