You should really look for a new job then. Digitas isn't hanging on to people that aren't thinking progressively and are stuck in the past. Have you thought about a travel agency or maybe a stock broker?

Wow. This is about one thing - a focus on creative ideas first and foremost. There are many smart ad people who share that view. My post was intentionally sarcastic to make the point. You'll see the pendulum swing back to creative at some point. It always does. If you really want to think progressively, look back first and then forward. Now lay off so I can pour myself a martini.
