Product Placement In Blogs

It was bound to happen: Marqui Product Placement in Blogs.

On Monday, a squad of around 15 independent bloggers will begin inserting mentions of Marqui's hosted communications management services into their blogs for money.

The bloggers will get $800 a month to mention Marqui with a link once a week in their blogs and post its emblem on a page. They'll get an additional $50 per qualified sales lead they send to Marqui.

Is nothing sacred? I'm just sitting here drinking a Coca Cola, pondering this development. Mmmmm... The pause that refreshes. Speaking of Coca Cola, I saw a funny TV ad the other day. It made me want to go out and buy some more Coca Cola.

Well, enough of this topic. I think I'll grab another Coca Cola and watch some TV. Hopefully, that Coca Cola commercial will come on again.

Jumping Off The Empire State Building

News item: Man dies in leap from Empire State Building.

A man who looked to be in his 30s climbed over the 10-foot-high, spiked fence surrounding the 86th-floor observation deck of the Empire State Building yesterday and leaped to his death, police said.

The police figured it out:

A police source said it was thought to be a suicide.

Jumping off the Empire State Building is pretty rare -- it happens, on average, about once every two years. But this is the second this year:

In February, a man took a fatal leap from the 80th floor, minutes after filling out a job application.
