@haruki_zaemon @joneaves @michaelneale @swearyanthony Offline, they’d had to pay for distribution (print, TV), was it even seen?

@haruki_zaemon @joneaves @michaelneale @swearyanthony Other way around. Able to track clicks, advertisers could demand to pay clicks only.

via Plume for Android in reply to haruki_zaemon

@haruki_zaemon @michaelneale @swearyanthony Sure, the value of any advertising is about ROI, but the price is about audience attention.

@swearyanthony @haruki_zaemon @michaelneale And yes, 10% to 15% were the kinds of figures that are pushing their way through my memory.

@Fascistlefty It’s an old injury, from when I was hit by a car. Certain over-uses fuck it up for a while.

via TweetDeck in reply to Fascistlefty

@Fascistlefty Yep, it certainly is. Used that mix before having the shoulder crunched back. Will need to resort to it again later today.

via TweetDeck in reply to Fascistlefty

For the curious, my shoulder/ribs were out. Had ‘em popped back Thursday, but had a long keyboard day Friday. It’s “just” strain injury.

Thanks, @Fascistlefty, but I don’t need to waste a doctor’s time. I know exactly what the problem is and how things will unfold.
