Charlie the Tuna wants your vote!

The advertising week NYC is coming up soon, and Charlie the tuna is out campaigning for Your vote. He's begging, really.

In mass-email that seems to spread around Del Monte foods mainly, Charlie begs for votes so that he can be the favorite brand icon ever, and have his likeness on posters and on the streets of Manhattan. Read more to see the mail.

www is redundant, by the way

I don't know how many people have noticed but this site does not use www in front of the domain. We're a bonafida class B non-www site and have been for the past three or four years. If you link to us and use the dang www's, our redirect will get rid of them anyway. In fact, all domains on this server redirect to non-www domain names.

no-www.org is a site where you can test yours and others www-class and explains in short why the www is - and has been for years - redundant. Isn't it a blessing to be able to say "u-arr-ell-dot-com" these days rather than "double-ya double-ya double-ya (phew) u-arr-ell-dot-com" to someone? You save on typing and space on businesscards, it's all good. :)

Open source miracle horse-birth advert.

The Register has found a very strange Japanese ad for Open Source software, actress Norika Fujiwara promotes StarSuite - Sun Microsystems' Japanese Office knock off. In one ad, Norika is so stunned by the $18 StarSuite price tag she falls over and gives birth to a foal - the idea is "anything can happen".

"We convey a concept of our $18 strategy as surprising and moving in the ad," said Nori Matsuda, the president and CEO of SourceNext. "The ad basically says, 'Anything can happen.'"
