Five Minute History Of Online Advertising

September 12, 2012

I ran across this on YouTube – a fun five minute history of online advertising by Todd Sawicki, the CRO of Cheezburger Network, from Ignite Seattle a few years back.

A couple of notes:
a) I have unsuccessfully tried to sell stuff to Todd Sawicki in the past .
b) I’ve worked with some former Gator employees (the dubious inventors of pop up ads).
c) The world’s first banner ad, an ad by AT&T, debuted on October 10, 1994 on HotWired.com and it was u-g-l-y.
