A fresh perspective on digital signage

Between WireSpring's digital signage and kiosk weblog, this blog, the Kiosk News blog and the In-Store & Retail Media News blog, I've been working double-time trying to keep up with all of the amazing news and innovations coming out of the industry lately. I've also found that the rampant BS press releases, unsubstantiated claims and excessive hype have somehow made me even more cranky and jaded than before.

Thankfully, we've brought in a new blogger, Phil Contrino, to take some of the heat. He's a smart, very media-savvy guy, and most importantly, brand new to the retail media industry. Hopefully that means it'll be a couple of months before he gets sick of the junk that we have to slog through daily in order to get to the real news :)

Phil's first post will be some time tonight or tomorrow, so keep your eyes opened!

Unrelated, what do you think of our new site redesign? We tried to better integrate the three blogs, since we realized that there was a big audience overlap. Also, comments are enabled on all three blogs, so hopefully we'll see some great conversations start popping up across the board (you can also subscribe to the comments directly, if you're into that kind of thing).

The new format looks great. Keep up the good work.
