Ad man blogs

One of Russell Davies pictures of Egg, Bacon, Chips and Beans
Russell Davies used to be something important in online advertising – but that was before anyone had heard of online advertising. These days he’s something important in advertising. He’s keeping three (count them) weblogs and each is a jewel. I particularly like his two nicely differentiated homages to the greasy spoon, A Good Place for a Cup of Tea and a Think and Egg, Bacon, Chips and Beans. The latter is practically a work of art and should probably be lottery funded. While you’re at, check out his ‘ordinary’ weblog, which is nicely written, clever and interesting. I think Russell is the kind of articulate, engaging bloke weblogs were invented for.
