Advertising’s Young Minds

Diana Ceausu points out this great initiative by Daniel Mejia which seeks to replicate the success of blog ranking systems such as Mack Collier’s Top 25 Marketing Blogs, Ad Age’s Power 150 and Peter Kim’s M20 — only this time the focus is the top 27 ad blogs by people under 27 years of age. Daniel will be updating this list every other month — so if you qualify but aren’t on the list, you have two months to do something about it.

The inaugural Young Minds list is:
