Disappointed with Google
I have been walking around the ad:tech expo for the last 90 minutes. Took lots of pictures and a few on-the-spot video interviews. I then come upon the Google booth and one of their spots was promoting their Google Audio ad product. I asked the rep if he wanted to do an interview and said yes. We started and at about minute 2, a woman came over and said that this is completely prohibited and that I have to stop recording. Google does not allow this type of thing.
She said that I could email pr@ and ask for an interview but that the Google pr team would have to be present as well. I said fine, was forced to delete the video in front of her and walked away.
I am absolutely baffled as to why this man can talk about Google Audio for 36 hours over the next 3 days but not be able to be on camera for 1-2 minutes discussing his piece of Google. For a company that is supposedly so open and embraces their user community, and as someone who is a Google AdWords and AdSense customer, I really was a bit turned off.
