On a serious note

One of our new friends—caffeinegoddess of fellow ad blog Adland—sent us a link to this banner to remind people that today is World AIDS Day.

Her e-mail was a good reminder that we should reflect on the toll that the disease continues to exact on the world, plus we also thought the banner was pretty cool, so we’re passing the link along. Here’s the banner’s premise: It will appear on every 157th page view on every site that displays it. Why the weird lottery effect, you ask? Because one in every 157 people worldwide carries the AIDS virus. If you want to grab the banner for your site, go here. It was created by Viewropa, a Europe-focused community site.
And now back to the AdFreak show.
