No Obvious Label
In the 7 years since i began blogging, WordPress has added advertisements (so now I pay to keep them off) and changed the difficulty index.
But I read this funny sentence in NYT about some fashion show, and realized that this could be my motto. No Obvious Label.
I’ve never felt comfortable being a billboard for certain things:
Car companies (now and then I’d accidentally ‘work’ for a car company, like when I was paid by Safe Routes To School. For about 20 or so classes I conducted with my SRS colleagues, I had to pop a CD into the computer that ostensibly touted bicycle safety, but all the while, the Honda robot did its “media impressions” magic to all the 2nd-4th graders that were our captive audience.
Naturally I didn’t last. I’m perhaps too critical of such things: IMBA flogs Subaru automobiles. All the race teams of note had car company affiliations back in the 90s and 2000s.
