1. I agree I hate it. Unfortunately most marketers and agencies see it as a bonus. They get to leverage their commercials across two media. Marketing Director: “Are we leveraging our marketing assets to maximise ROI” Product Manager “Yes, we’re distributing them on the internet” Tick!

  2. Laurel,

    Have you posted your thoughts on about how best to monetise social networks before?

    And by monetise I don’t mean blatantly profit, I mean pay for the upkeep of the network.

    I’d be interested to read them.

  3. @Peter: It wouldn’t be so much of a problem, except that people are desperate to monetize everything. But it’s the price of living in a capitalist/hyperconsumerist system, and the only way to get rid of one (and variants on it) is to change the other.

    1. Yeah buddy when website hosting is also free then websites won’t need to monetize their pages to pay for their hosting. And why would anyone do anything for free?

  4. What I am tired of is the advertising videos on websites that automatically start playing. I hate that crap, if it isn’t the noise it is the fact it causes my browser to freeze up as Flash crashes. Since I am a software engineer I am seriously thinking about making a plugin to remove all flash garbage from webpages as they load. If only I had more time
