One More Thing

Via six_apart comes this article in the Wall Street Journal about how marketing researchers are monitoring the blague-o-sphere in order to mine it for unfiltered opinions on their clients' products. It will be interesting to see how this business develops, and what additional widgets they come up with to make it more attractive to the companies which subscribe to their services.

I wonder how long before somebody comes up with clever ways of messing with them? When somebody does, I'm in! For now, my feeling is sort of like, well, Big Brother is Watching, but he turns out to be a bit simple, so, not to worry. Silly marketing majors.
