Advertisers need to learn how to adapt, especially if its target, as David Adams said, is "sophisticated technologists".

In Santa Fe, signs, billboards, and other marketing shingles are regulated so it does not take away from the beauty of the surrounding environment.

I'm sure there are cities and sites around the globe which do the same. Last time I checked there are no golden arches above the la Tour Eiffel or la Basilique du Sacré-Cœur.

Marketers and ad people will, pardon my use of words, *%@#!, moan and complain about it. They have learned the community is behind it and their objections fall on deaf ears.
