Out of the Blue

With all this talk of the decline of web advertising these days, several readers have asked us via email and posts to our messageboards whether clicking on the ads on this site directly helps us. There is a more complex answer to be had, but the simpler one will just about suffice in its place, and that answer is yes. This is because in addition to the fact that there are CPC (cost per click) ads in the mix, which only actually pay of if they are clicked upon, even for the much broader CPM (cost per thousand) advertisements, click-through rate is often used to define whether such campaigns are a success, and should be continued. So there, clicking the ads certainly can't hurt, and who knows, maybe some day someone will actually shock that damn monkey.

Stranger yet, the hall can predict the future:

November 30, 2001
A multi-count lawsuit against Chuck Berry is filed on behalf of pianist Johnny Johnson. It seeks a share of royalties for Johnson, who allegedly co-composed numerous hit songs with Berry that have heretofore been credited to Berry alone.
