Should we be in the creative's corner against programmatic?

At Econsultancy's recent Creative Programmatic conference, I was struck by a healthy scepticism towards some areas of personalization.

Then this morning I read a beautifully concise post from the Ad Contrarian.

I'll quote from both the conference and the blog post and you can make up you're own mind as to the dangers posed by personalization to the art of advertising.

Has 'digital' become an anachronism?

I was struck by the news that Adam & Eve/DDB has dropped 'digital' from its job titles.

Firstly, what a perfect piece of PR. But there's more to it than that; the agency is an early mover in the next stage of an ideological regression that has been happening for a while now.

There's a backlash against technology, against third-party solutions, corrupt ad models, poor creative and even content marketing.

Agencies want to get back to 'the work'.
