Photos from ad:tech's SF '08 Exhibit Hall


This year I got to visit the exhibit hall at ad:tech. Come share my experience, starting with this winning number from the AKQA /Search booth.

I am hipster. Witness the sulk-age against bleak existential black, and my awful white chairs.

o Content is the best ad. Can't wait for that to catch on.

o Leadqual salesguy: "Get it? He's HOMELESS." Me: "Why?" Salesguy: "Because he needed real estate information and nobody called him back. WE WILL CALL HIM BACK."

o On a quest for Swag That Would Change My Life (SWAGTWCML), I found cotton candy that turns teeth blue. It was such a Reptar Bar moment.

o She has orgasmic-tastic Herbal Essences sex hair. And she knows.

o Homie in the background does not look turned on. Maybe it's because he has radar coming out of his back.

o Reply(.com)! Please! Because it's lonely, and its PR woman spent all day harassing us in the press room.

o We cannot promise you conviction, but we do have pie. Lots and lots of pie.

o AdShuffle gives me defective Rubiks Cube, looks alarmed while I photograph it, offers new one. You sick people and your broken toys.

o The British came, bearing scarves made of Union Jacks. This trooper walked over to talk to me, even after her boss waved his hands and shouted, "She's just press!" That bastard.

o Casale has balls. Ultra bouncy red ones. Hijinks ensued when mine bounced down the convention stairs. I was bummed, but probably not as much as the people in the way.

o Watch this dude strive to be more normal than normal, which is actually a psychological disorder. Also, I don't think normal people spell "extra" that way.

o Steve is not a team player. "What are you WEARING?" I shouted. "I ran out of clothes," he said.
