I’m almost as much of a geek as Michael Farnum with his fixation for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In case you didn’t know, Shadowrun is a Sci-fi/Fantasy role playing game where magic and machines existed together in the near future. And yes, there were elves in skin tight armor with big guns in the game. I gave my copy of the first addition rules away to a friend a couple of years ago. Hmmm, maybe I win the geek contest with Michael after all.
Is it a sign that our industry is maturing that we’re starting to use sex to sell? Or is it a sign that we’re lacking in any substance worth selling and have to rely on sexy images? Obviously, the answer is a little bit of both, but the fact that a security company can afford a full page ad in USA today says something about the amount of money in security.
I’m sure Alan will have a little something to say on this, given his previous rants on booth babes. I don’t see this as any different. And it works, so I don’t think this’ll be the last time we see it.
