How Clients Are Showing Interest in Digital Agencies to Serve as the 'Lead' on Integrated Marketing Efforts

by: Idris Mootee

Ad agencies are cutting people across the board responding to budgets cut from clients. WPP does not expect to see any significant economic recovery before 2010 which is likely be the case. In additional to cost cutting and recruitment freeze across much of the group, they are also announcing plans to relocate the company's tax base to Dublin, a move which the company expects to provide significant tax savings.

The Everything 2.0 Discussion - the Real Issue

by: Sigurd Rinde

Been itching to jump into the 2.0 discussion but have held back as I am a bit counter-every-theory... but why the heck not, risking much head shaking allow me a quick brain dump on one aspect of everything 2.0:
