One Final Jab From AdJab As Its Plug is Pulled by AOL
AdJab's Chris Thilk told us a few weeks ago AdJab would be ceasing its operations at the t'end of January. Well, the end of the month is here and that last jab has been published. Four of the main contributors to the site, Chris Thilk, Tom Biro, Adam Finley and Bob Sassone leave their parting thoughts and send AdJab off into the good night. We're told all of its content will live on to be forever indexed by Google and referred to by those of us in the advertising industry.
Is never fun when a sister/brother publication leaves the party but we know the individuals behind it will fair well and, small as this industry is, we'll see each other very soon. When AdJab launched during Super Bowl 2005, they caught our attention with their army of writers and voluminous content. We read AdJab every day because they'd always have something we wouldn't or a different angle on something we did. It was a solid publication and added nicely to the varied collection of ad-focused sites and blogs in the industry.
We wish all the AdJabbers well as they move on to their next gig and if any of you AdJab readers are feeling a void in your life, there's this nice subscribe box at the top of this site to keep you fed with ad goodies on a daily basis. Of course, there's not just us. There's AdFreak, AdScam, AdLand (Commercial Archive), CoolzOr, Beyond Madison Avenue and many, many more.
