Some of you may know that I like to enjoy my attic as if it were a sauna (it’s hot enough). I can usually use my tablet for about a half hour before it gets too hot to think (it, not me- I thrive in my sweat box, just don’t ask me math).
I’ve been missing my me time, but right now, as I’m writing this, I have gotten a little back. And so now I’m going through my Adweek saves and laughing my ass off (and sweating it off, too) in order to bring my Media Nerd perspective to your Inbox or browser.

More videos about their new technology can get found by clicking here.
This agency has come up with a new way to win awards, not for the work, but for their entries about their work. It’s a parody, but I can imagine this happening someday.
Hope these were all new to you (ICYMI), or long enough ago that it made for a satisfying throwback. Where did 2015 and the first half of 2016 go?!?
