No money changed hands to show you this banner ad. This ad is appearing because CMJ doesn't like how the internet has become five massive shit websites filled with screenshots of the other four massive shit websites. For the internet to become the internet again, we've gotta get eyeballs on smaller websites, with links to other websites, so people can surf the net
again (remember that?), and Improbable Island is big enough to help out with that.
This is the only page on Improbable Island where you'll ever see an ad, and the ad you see here is chosen at random from a large pool of people who've asked for their ad to be shown here. Corporations aren't allowed to advertise here, so this ad is probably to a weird niche personal hobby website
that might send you down a cool rabbithole to who-knows-where. If you're even remotely
curious about the ad you see above, I encourage you to click it now (it opens in a new tab) rather than assuming it'll come around again, because you might be waiting a while!
have a hobby website, fan site, independent blog, webcomic, site for your writing or music or knitting patterns or woodworking projects or whatever, visit this page
with your 468x60 banner image and the URL you want me to link to, and I'll put it in the deck to be shuffled and shown here at random. No money, no catch, no bullshit, just help us reclaim the weird niche hobby internet that big business stole from us.
We're giving away free advertising because the likes of Amazon and Google and Facebook really really hate it
when people give away the thing they're trying to sell, and they've never done a damn thing for us. Fuck 'em. Take back the Net.
