I've often made a 'song and dance' about the 'fact' that the award winning AdCenter of Looksmart rarely gets a mention ever, from the industry "experts" in much of their comment. It does make you wonder why?

It gets even worse. Here's a great schematic layout of where is all "is" and not a listing of Looksmart (or, of the scaled Looksmart AdCenter "inter-connecting" platform and it's API 'enabler') can be found, at all. Not even included (below) as an "Ad Server" yet Microsoft's Atlas gets a jumper. And Looksmart's Ad AdCenter is a highly acclaimed, award winning Ad Server?

The article (www.clickz.com/3640272 - well worth a read), says:
"While showing how complex the sector is, it's an easy-to-digest who's who of major players in more than a dozen ad tech categories.
These include agency-owned media buying platforms; third-party media buying services also known as demand-side platforms; companies that specialize in creative optimization, data optimization, data aggregation, ad verification; ad exchanges; and ad networks."

Looksmart (LOOK) is a "BUY all you can" down at this level, is my opinion. It will be BIG, soon. A 'once in a lifetime' type of investment, is my opinion. Few would understand though. Nevermind, it's mostly all fun. (And in watching the share-price 'manipulators' at work is reassuring, at times)
