So far, around 1000 unique ads have been created, using a Pen Tablet and a custom publishing tool via Flash Media Server.

Mediafront’s idea has been extremely cool, and I add a further (impossible?) point: can you imagine if users could have been able to reply to the copywriters custom comments? To learn more about Sol’s campaign, check out the recap put live by the agency.
