It's a good thing when CBS scraps its subscription model for online coverage of next year's NCAA basketball tournament because Larry Kramer knows the network will make more money on advertising.
At this stage in the game I could easily devote this entire space to the growth and distribution of online video ads, but, I know, to neglect rich media's principal technology and players would be a sin. So, back to the basics we go.
