Even on a medical break, I encountered a glut of advertising. I’ve been out for a couple weeks on what some people are calling a vacation (though it was medical-related… not what I’d call a vacation). As I get back into the swing of regular writing, I’d like to point you to a brand new post on the Train of Thought site. It’s about the ubiquity of advertising and how it is infinitely more far-reaching than we think. In fact, advertising is now an up-to-the-minute prospect, and many of us are not even aware of it. We never really get a vacation from advertising. I was reminded of this on the airplane, where I was treated to the complimentary airline magazine, a long cover-to-cover advert, and in the dentist’s chair where I listened to adverts on the tube. Read on if you’re inclined — and thanks.
