"The future of advertising is no advertising. Communities around brands cannot be sustained without large sums of investment funds, the very antithesis of how a group of people are actually encouraged to gather.
The advertising world is seeking to justify it's existence without taking into consideration the "groundswell" of new communities that are actually depending on each other, outside of currency and influence, for their needs. The future of advertising is now and it is right in front of us, but there is little hope that it will continue to remain relevant, unless...
...it continues to strangle the public and hope that we don't notice."
