Spam emails are getting weirder and weirder. The latest one to creep through contained these 4 pictures attached twice.

I'm desperately curious what's behind this. Unless some long forgotten spam bot has gone haywire?

Interesting dissection of Limited Run's claims about Facebook ads and bot clicks on Search Engine Watch

I'm beginning to hate infographics. It's just linkbait these days. 

A real infographic (e.g. Minard's classic of Napolean's march and retreat in Russia) show statistics in an enlightening way that would be lost if represented as text and tables. But which of these infographics wouldn't be just as understandable if written in essay form? The graphics add nothing.

Interesting read of the dilemma publishers face (and advertisers, for that matter, though often they are two sides of the same coin).

The real impact of the Google Reader closure is that many hardcore Google fans feel betrayed. This isn’t the Google they fell in love with.

To declutter my Twitter feed but to keep on top of online ad news, I created this list of 31 sites. Have I missed anyone?

Trying to complete +Think with Google questionnaire online at www.ipsos-mori.com/ThinkQuarterly but the page says it's inactive.  Don't make me complete the paper form and post it!

"The next time you look at a Google doodle, remember, some poor bloke slogging in the heat of Afghanistan would be better equipped if they actually paid the same rate of tax as your greengrocer."

Excellent point. Perhaps because we don't trust the government to chew gum and walk at the same time? When I question my feelings, I really don't think that there's only one priority.

The Government that sends private emails to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests wants to record all of yours, for only £1.8bn.
