Ad Literacy

Great article about some new uses for advertising: Selling you a new past: "'What is important these days is not what advertising does to consumers, so much as how consumers use advertising to make statements about themselves to other people." [via KoLi 10/22] I wish critical analysis of the media I consume every day was part of the media I consume every day. (Which reminds me how much I miss Brill's Content.)

I named my harddrive Brill. I loved that magazine. I will occasionally buy an old copy at that place on Hawthorne. *sigh*
I know, I know. Have you (or anyone) found any magazine that comes close?
damn, thats an incredible quote right there, from the dude in that article
