For those of us who miss the old days of AdCritic, Tim Yang (of Geek Blog fame) has created The Ad Blog. Dorkcellent.
What were the old days of AdCritic, Matt?
Back in the day (understand that my day isn’t very venerable; I’m talking like 1998), AdCritic featured a huge repository of current commercials. It was the place you’d go to watch any commercial you liked or see any commercial you’d heard about.
I’m an AdCritic user; access to it comes with the magazine Creativity, an AdAge pub for advertising creatives. My question is about what made the “old days” different than these days? Are you talking about when it was free, or was there some other iteration I missed?
Yes, when it was free. I found when I was asked to pay $100 a year for it, my enthusiasm waned somewhat. Fewer links to it as well.

The title, it should be said, is a misnomer. You’ll see.
