    Yo Mr. Bogusky,

    Thanks for the shout out. You know how we role here, so we hope, if you are watching, that you will consider it an honor for us to throw a few existential questions your way.

    Bogusky survey.

    What is advertising?

    How do you relate to a client, what is the most abstract way you can describe that relation?

    Why has this division between producer and promoter occurred?

    What are the ethical constraints for an advertiser?

    What does the future hold? (go anywhere with this)

    Akbar, brilliant idea to follow this up with some questions. We are definitely seeking knowledge from wherever we can find it.

    I sent Alex a tweet to your questions. Hopefully he follows up with us if not no worries. Folks can get busy and existential questions can be quite time consuming as we’re finding out. It was nice a nice shout out though for sure.

    Originally I sent him a tweet with a link to our new mission statement. Read it here folks if you haven’t seen it. It’s on the top nav bar too. We have some pretty lofty goals for this art project we call Globatron.

    Akbar I reread your questions to Alex and this one is a bit confusing:
    Why has this division between producer and promoter occurred?

    What do you mean by that? Are you trying to say:
    Why is there a division between the creative department and account management?

    hey Globatron, that question is more basic, it has to do with the creation of a product, the person who produces, and the promotion of that product, the person who constructs advertisement.

    it is such a ubiquitous part of modern life, that i wondered, from someone who is so involved in this division, why they think it has.

    perhaps it is merely a further specialization and division of labor within our ant-like society, or maybe it has to do with the realization that creation and promotion come from two different perspectives. i don’t know.

    is that clear? i’m a little foggy today, akbar has a cold.

    Be sure and take your seizure medication before viewing.

    The title of the art project is Tweaking on Twitter. The title is very descriptive as you will see. Also make sure and click through to hear the globatron theme song.
