That's amazing. Didn't you used to do marketing for us? How much would something like that cost?

One day I hope to see the Palm Tran buses driving around with FAU ads on the side.

I hope to have BCT and PalmTran buses that are entirely "FAU buses", all decked out like how there are FSU buses in Tallahassee run by the City.

You probably have entered pertinent information at one point (such as requesting weather in our area), and then your IP address for your computer was tagged as being in that area, and local content and advertising is loaded specifically for that area.

These darn computers are smart  ;)

I think that't the sort of thing that will arise when we have 40-45k students and 6000-8000 of them live on-campus. If FAU grows its population, Boca will be forced to respond to it. Stores, bars, restaurants, transportation will all suddenly focus on FAU in an effort to capture that audience.

It depends, they can pay yahoo per click or they can pay per ad....and I do think that your IP might have something to do with it...I doubt yahoo users in Calgary are getting requests for FAU tickets...which is a good thing, IP targeted ads are really useful because they can go after the people most likely to be interested (like you!)

I was in the office one Saturday and got a little tired and board. I took a break and found a Sun Sentinal story on-line written by Ted. I left a comment. Even though it was my computer at work it still posted the city and state along with the name I used, what ever that was. I work for a very big company that can afford the best security software and equipment.  It still posted the IP info.
