    I work in advertising media sales. I sell the ads that pay your salary

    I am always interested in how advertising effectiveness is measured. What strategies do you use?
    I tend to subscribe to Kellogg's dictum Advertising works half the time but nobody know which half
    Is that unfair?

  • Hard News: Standing with the Poo,

    Thanks. I am so naive about some of these things. Are you allowed to say erotic or is it erratic?

    glaring omission is the long-form, one-on-one interview

    Which you get on Media 7

    And then of course, pronography is already illegal in much of the country

    George: Is this deliberate? Or are you suggesting we are pron to porn?

    I read somewhere (it may have been here) a most sensible solution for solving the BP oil leak: plug it with the collected works of Ayn Rand.

    Why and who is responsible for this dumbing down

    Much can be blamed on the American 'consultants' (aka blinkered-vision bozos) TVNZ brought out, to restructure its news, in the 1980s/1990s.

  • Radiation: Geek, annoyed,

    Yes ,an interesting story here. They appeared to be moldering in a back room at the Archive--potentially turning into nitrate soup--until a visiting American archivist chanced upon them. Apparently they hail from a time when it wasn't worth the expense to return American film prints to the home territory.

    Ronald Hugh Morrieson really did capture something of the spirit of the place, then?

    Quite possibly. I remember that Hawera had a wine bar, which was the source of some fascination. I guess RHM was their best customer. Must have been real rot-gut in the 1950s.

    But I can never get nostalgic about small-town New Zealand. They weren't always the healthiest places to grow up in.

  • Hard News: The Future of the Future,

    When I first read this editorial I thought it might be a spoof, or Garth George having another spasm. It really it the biggest load of horse-poop.

    I dimly remember life-before-television in New Zealand and it really was a dull, insular place. Growing up in South Taranaki, the biggest event of the year was the A&P Show. Other weekends, we went searching for a severed head reputedly thrown in a local river. As for conversation, there really wasn't any..

    Didn't Oscar Wilde say something about the English talking about the weather...?
