Marc Canter has this idea, that bloggers (those who write on the web) should/could get paid just for writing about certain companies. I’m all for it. Heck, I’ll mention stuff for money, bring it on! (Waiting…)
There is a demo at the Marqui site starring some Jetson-lookalikes that explain what Marqui is about. In watching it, I couldn’t help but feel that Marqui is attempting to bridge what is commonly called “old media” with “new media” or maybe “big co” with “backchannel” or… no wait, I know… “lumbering media” with “agile media” – yeah that’s it!
Well, it’s an interesting experiment. I think it could work. I’ll continue to monitor the situation on my Apple PowerMac computer at the end of each day after I kick off my Converse All Stars and relax with a nice cool Sprecher’s Root Beer.
(Disclaimer: I don’t know what I’m talking about!)
