#NOT a real book (Just a screed)

The real question of course is: Does Online Advertising work?

Unfortunately, it's impossible to give a simple answer to this apparently straightforward question. For starters, this is not a single question, but three. 

The right question to ask would be: for whom does Online Advertising work?

Do Banner Ads, what we once called Interactive Advertising and now call Display Ads because nobody clicks on them, and much less "interacts" with them, work for Publishers? Do they work for Advertisers? Or do they just work for the Middlemen based in Silicon Valley?

The 15 Questions:

1. Why Banner Ads? 
2. What was Online Advertising supposed to be like? 
3. Did it work out as advertised? 
4. Why not? 
5. Why are Banner Ads still around? 
6. Is all this Targeting good? 
7. Is this Advertising at all? 
8. How big is this thing? 
9. What is Programmatic? 
10. Does Online Advertising work for Publishers? 
11. Does it work for Advertisers? 
12. Does it work for the Middlemen? 
13. Is it a gigantic scam? 
14. Should my company stay away from Banner Ads? 
15. Is there any hope for Online Advertising?

Regardless of the question, the Internet is the answer. 

We are told that the Internet is the solution to every kind of problem. But is it true? Will Big Data help us to understand the world? Is the Internet really on the side of democracy? Does it make sense to make gamify everything? Is the Internet (still) the Frontier? Or is that era past us and we are now faced with the greatest concentration of economic power of all time?

It seemed perfectly normal to Jeff Jarvis, a famous American journalist, to ask: "What Would Google Do?" if the company based in Mountain View were put in charge of the public sector.

It apparently didn't occur to him that the rules and goals the public sector lives by are, or at least should be, different from those of a private company.

According to many, the Internet, this jumble of servers and communication protocols, is the greatest invention ever. But is it really so? And wasn't the same thing said of inventions such as the telegraph, the radio, movie pictures, television or nuclear energy?

Today the Internet is winning. To the point that it seems natural that it should win. But is it so? Does the Internet have to win? Is the Internet's impact positive for society?

Perhaps it's time to clear our minds and talk about the Ideology of the Internet.
