wonder what happened to this guy. i used to live with him and he was creepy as fuck.fuck, if you gonna bash, at least get your facts right
the magazine isn't the focus anymore
they make way dough off of idiots on the internet (like you)
VICE is that simple easy idea that we all thought we could have come up with, and it pisses you all off to no end that it wasn't you
As someone who started a programmatic ad network 4 years ago I can tell you that Google and Facebook "the oligopoly" are sucking most for the ad dollars out of the ecosystem (most in the trade agree it is 80-90%). Nobody in the industry has figured out a way around it, so acceptance has set in and media companies are scrambling for other ways to make money. The best solution so far seems to be subscription models (like the New York Times is doing intensely). CPM rates for display ads have been plummeting.Could be a reckoning for Vice in the offing.... Hearing their advertising revenue not up to expectations, Facebook and google eating all the ad dollars...
