Hadn’t realized just how passionate the anti-blogger movement had become until I read this morning’s Guardian Which some of us old’uns remember as the Manchester Guardian , and read about the distinguished German executive, Jean-Remy von Matt, the head of the leading German advertising agency Jung von Matt.
Herr Matt in one of those felicitous little epithets that male advertising executives are prone toWho could forget Neil French’s outburst at an ad industry event in Toronto when the WPP Group boss said there aren’t more female creative directors “because they’re crap” and they eventually “wimp out” and “go off and suckle something.” Two weeks later WPP accepted French’s resignation. dismissed weblogs as the “toilet walls of the internet“. He went on “What on earth gives every computer owner the right to exude his opinion, unasked for? … and most bloggers really just exude.”
Which really puts all of us in our place, as the Galloping Beaver describes it . And the German bloggers have had a field day with parodies.
