Jason Tate On "100 Words Or Less" Podcast

Posted by - 11:08 AM on 09/24/13
Our CEO/Founder Jason Tate was recently on Ray Harkins' "100 Words Or Less" Podcast.
One afternoon I spoke to Jason Tate, the founder of Absolutepunk.net, about a variety of subjects including focus, handling criticism and where he gets inspired. It's a great look at how to start something and continue to build it into something long lasting. Brought to you in conjunction with Propertyofzack.com. 100 Words is part of the How We Are Network, visit Howweare.org for more information.

Which ad? The Big Mac ones? They play if your mouse goes over them.

Yeah the Big Mac ones, and that's why the are the worst ads because you just have to drag the cursor over them and they start playing. Since they take up almost half the top page and i use tabs, when i click on absolutepunk and then drag the mouse down to a story it can start blasting. It wouldnt be as bad if it was someone talking but the music one is set super high- kinda like how commercials are always set so much louder than the show.

Yeah, the Big Mac ads are annoying as hell, can't tell you how many times I've brushed past them.

Carry on here.

Jason, how do long do your top and side ads usually go for before switching to a new set? Is it just a monthly switch or does it depend on the advertiser?

Also, lol at Levi's and McDonalds. I imagine you don't choose the ads, but if you want we can start a petition to whoever at BuzzMedia does pick them so they're more music-related).
