More marketing madness as we pretty much beat crowdsourcing and Unilever to a pulp. Enjoy the fun with Ad Age editor Jonah Bloom, Joe Jaffe and Kristi Faulkner.

No, but what I saw looking at the site is a way to browse news visually similar to what the New York Times did with their revamped grid slash news aggregating approach.
