Advertising: Why do we do it?

Well, I guess the better question is what’s in it for me? In my case, I get a book from O’Reilly for each of their banners. Most of their conferences and their magazines have this deal. So, having a banner for an event of magazine on the web page for a couple of months in return for one of their books is very nice.

The other items I may place on the site from time to time are local events or conferences. I get nothing for that, except satisfaction that I am promoting local events and proving that there is a real high-tech environment in Ottawa, no matter how underground it has gotten in the past few years.

If you have any items you would like to see featured on the site, let me know. I’ll be happy to publish them. Once I get the “advertising” module up and running, there will be banners for events that change on the bottom of the page (or maybe to the right).
