- Matt recommends: Seth Godin mentioned: vintageadbrowser.com -- repository of 100,000+ "classic" advertisements -- it's searchable by keywords and themes. Good source of ideas for artwork/campaigns.
- Ron recommends: Amazon's Kindle -- it's easy to read books on it, many books are available for instant download, and the ability to search for specific keywords anywhere in your book is phenomenal. Listen to the podcast to hear about Matt's low-tech version of the Kindle. :( amazon.com
