More Google and TV
SiliconBeat directs us to a post by Robert X. Cringely about the value and strategic potential of Google serving ads on TV (contextual targeting). At a high level, it's consistent with this report.
On a related note, I took a briefing from a company today in the TV/cable ad space that is going to make a big splash next week when they launch (with a local angle). Sorry to tease (I hate when I read cryptic statements like this on other blogs), but it was relevant and I'm eager to talk about this company.
It was a very impressive demo. More later.
Have a good weekend.
