    Good points, Mark. Looks like first uses will not be personal but rather businesses deploying them essentially as driverless taxis.

    Just sitting back watching the billions of dollars wasted on this nonsense.
    First, who wants to be seen in a vehicle that looks like the Ghost Buster hearse?
    What about the car that debted in Vegas a month ago that crashed in 2 hours?
    Uber might be the big winner here to go driverless because apparently they don't have
    enough technology sources to vet their drivers on criminal background checks.  Just got an $8,600,000. fine in Colorado.   AND STILL, no one EVER says how much these clusters of plastic circuit boards add to the price of the car .

    How would this effect direct mail ? Are email addresses more personal and private than home addresses ? Will the Supreme Court be able to make determinations without specific laws for these issues ? Snowblower companies can send direct mail pieces to addresses in Maine without sending them to addresses in Florida easily obtained from DM companies without permission from addressees/residents. Email is more personal. How about fbeast where people can voluntarily post their addresses ? This is clearly complicated and needs to be defined. We consumers know which way we prefer.

    ...for the same reasons people go out to eat instead of having it delivered, or shop and experience the fresh food they will buy and cook, or go into a retail clothing store. It's an experience that is part of the acquisition. 

    I happen to like shopping. It's when you find something to wear that you like, try it on, and decide you will get that item. As an added plus, you could get a good deal on it. It's not that much different (just a different category) from being a home cook, shopping for fresh ingredients and finding something unusual you could use. Or getting that unique restaurant experience you don't get from home delivery.

    These are things the digital world will never be able to duplicate (unless and until VR makes some great strides), that get us off our asses and out of the house, and ultimately save humanity by forcing interactions with other humans.

    If he could be impeached, it would have surely happened by now. Mueller will still be digging in 2019. It's time to "move on" (as they told us in 1998).

    The billboard, if the numbers shown are true, will not show strength in advertising, but it seems its more about letting people know that 2.5MM people are in this movement. Its like McDonalds when they used to put how many burgers were sold on the stores (I think they now just say "over a billion"). This is smart use of a billboard as its also in the home town of this president. And we know his ego....

    The ad monetization model on video has become tough if you rely on YouTube distribution. Great stories can be told by brands, and so storytelling has grown, and ad agencies can benefit from that side of the equation, while using the YouTube platform with the little cost associated to it, but an ad network play - that is where they are stuck as a company. Great article.

    Sorry but buying outdoor advertising does not "demonstrate the nationwide strength of our movement.”  It only demonstrates you know how to buy advertising.

    When a product or service is free, there's a good chance you are the product. If users feel violated, then let them get a full refund for the nothing they paid.

    Today, 8:21 AM re: Before He Was Senator: An Al Franken Memory by by Adam Buckman, Featured Columnist (TVBlog - Nov. 20)

    He never called you,Adam? He called me. About 8 years ago I was an adjunct professor of opinion journalism at Quinnipiac University. Since I was commenting on Franken's bufoonish activities as a talkshow host for the leftist Air America network in the class, I decided to write an Op-Ed about why Air America was failing. It ran in a couple of national dailes, and specifically mentioned Franken's VERY unfunny skit, in which he portrayed an inept suicide bomber. Playing suicide bombing for laughs. A day or so later, after the piece ran, Franken called me. He was profane in the extreme, screaming at me. He couldn't point to any inaccuracies in the story, but he clearly hated me for writing it. It certainly surprise me that he treated women like some are alleging. I think he treated everyone--including you--as not worthy of his high intellect. I was appalled when he was elected to the US Senate and I hope he is booted from it.
