This is where adland collects our fifteen megabytes of fame. If you want to check out and contact the crew, do so under that link.
Press can be quoting us, using us as reference, or simply interviewing us. Adland was founded Åsk Dabitch Wäppling back in 1996. It began as a passion project, collecting recent ad campaigns, pairing up badland ads and as an outlet to adrant on recent happenings in the ad industry. As it grew, with a discussion mailing list and much mail generated daily, it became a database-driven website collecting great (and not so great) ads serving many caustic comments and editorials on the advertising industry. Some called it a blog, but we do not. The site has been used as resource or quoted by the New York Times (USA), Adweek (USA), Marketing Mag (Canada), the Library of Congress, Spiegel (DE), CNN Money (USA), Media Guardian (UK), Resumé (SE), Adformatie (NL), Campaign magazine (UK), Creativity (USA), Svenska Dagbladet (SE), Dagens Industri (SE), Brand Equity (IN), Børsen (DK) and many many more.

Ok kids, we've done it again, we've outgrown yet another server. Sheesh, we go through these like Kleenex lately. Aeon is soon no more, and Ares will be our machine. Come Wednesday afternoon CET, we'll take everything down for roughly an hour and move some bits and bobs over.

Åsk and Adland is put on the swedish mag Att:entions list of the new media-elite!

(I have tried to interpret the Swedish lingua...)

"When it comes to marketing Åsk Wättling rules the net. More known as "Dabitch" she runs the blog "Adland" which entice thousands of marketingnerds all over the world."

Yeah. The Swedish Adland-gang is proud as hell since the rest of the list is not that good. But hey, finally... :)

Ah, how nice it is to be elite something or other as ekonominyheterna.se just named yours truly one of Swedens "new media elite". In all the exitment they slipped on the keyboard and gave me two T's instead of P's - Åsk Wättling instead of Wäppling. An honest mistake, it could happen to anyone after too many GT's, I mean those letters are practically right next to each other on a qwerty keyboard... or maybe not. ;) Still, all press is good, as long as they spell your name right. Ha!

A commenter waving a red pen has alerted them to their mistake so they've managed at least to change the headline name spelling in their list article on the new media elite. We'll glue this to our press clippings scrap book anyway. :)
