  This morning I talked about how we're entering what I think of as the third age of the commercial Web. In the early days, we had to figure out how to do everything, so it was focused on technical wizardry and pushing technology as far as we could. Then, the digital folks had to prove that their production values could be as high (and higher) than traditional TV spots, which seemed to culminate (and set a high bar) last year. This year, my hope is that we'll see more focus on the insights that drive great digital ideas. Ideas that play to the strengths of the medium, and evolve it.
