  • 12. Media agencies disintermediated? “Media agencies blew it when they got too greedy and saw the opportunity to generate super-profits through exchanges and trading desks.

Yet the media industry is just notputting out the right noises to the incredible talentout there , and is not going wide enough to find thetalent that can be unlocked from unexpectedquarters of our society
