Nanny-nanny-poo-poo! We aren’t telling! Ever!

Whether we are Mike Byrne or a junior copywriter, shouldn’t make a difference to you. The relevance of commentary, its value should be based on the strength of the argument, not a title. Agree or disagree we don’t care, but keep your ears open! If you need a business card to consider an idea, a concept, an argument, then you should get out of this business. You, yes you, are what’s keepin’ the biz down.

God help who wrote this comment. We pray for you and the agency you work for.

“That’s funny – they probably work at Grey or some lameass place where titles are what they have in lieu of ideas. That said, of course everyone would be curious. We know you’re in NY and my money is that you’re a woman. I think you work at a big agency but other than that, I’m drawing a blank. But I read you every day and I don’t care if I’m right or wrong!”

Comment #2:

You’re not a thorn Angela People wonder whether you work at an agency or if you’re just a reporter for MediaPost. Even people at good agencies.
