Ask.com are one bunch of sneaky buggers. Their current marketing campaign revolves around the site information-revolution.org. The whole brand is designed to give a grass-rootsy, activist feels while actually being for corporate whorage.
I guess what bugs me about this campaign is the piggy backing on genuine causes to sell. It’s not actually collaborating with any cause to give something back, it’s just cheapening the concept of grassroots activism in my eyes. That seems like a real shame. Clever? Yes. Big? No.
The reason people don’t use ask.com? it’s not as good a product as Google or Yahoo!.

I’m about to start a series of interviews with a number interesting people. There will hopefully be interviews twice a week. However, it depends on how many of the people I know I can get to speak to me and responsive they are. If you would like to be interviewed on something email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I expect the topics will be diverse but I’m only choosing things which I think people should know or care about. Keep your eyes peeled.
