DoubleClick Powers NBC Olympics Online Ad Insertion......No Overlay Ads Permitted by the IOC
For those of us who don't like to see overlay ads pop up or stream while watching video, you won't see any on the NBC Olympics coverage on MSN. That's a mandate from the International Olympic Committee, which keeps tight control of the way the Games are presented.
Microsoft's Eric Schmidt is one of the key executives in the MSN/NBC Sports joint effort for online coverage of the Olympics in the United States. He came by the Beet.TV studios on Friday to fill us in on various technical and advertising-related topics around the Olympics.
The ad formats are much like on television, with pre-roll ads and in-stream ads inserted between pauses in events.
All the ad inventory is managed by Google's DoubleClick. This is the first insertion of DoubleClick ads into Silverlight, the new Microsoft rich-media platform. The agreement to integrate DoubleClick and Silverlight was announced just last week.

Even the big guys in tech make big blunders some times.
We count down the biggest.
Tollie, who lived his life as the fat kid and dealt with his self, inflicted circumstances in a self-destructive way, ballooned to over 500 pounds by the age of 24.
The pothole entrenched first few chapters of Tollies life, are viewed by most people as nothing short of inspiring, as seen in various national publications.
Tollie has taken all the experiences of his past and referenced them into empowering tools for his future. He has an absolute unshakable belief in himself and allows no limits in his life.
Actor, Speaker, Visionary, Eccentric, there is no one word to describe Tollie. He is a man who feels incredibly blessed, and given his second chance, will not tolerate ever being just status quo. He will always push the envelope and does not allow limits to be placed on him.
Tollie has taken his own personal style of leadership and creativity everywhere he goes. Always up for new and exciting challenges he has shown skills in many different business functions starting as early as 16. While living in Moscow Russia as a Student Ambassador he split his time between studies and working for A.O. Victoria Ltd. whose business included imports and investments Tollie embraced this challenge everyday and was exposed to a variety of business and Government leaders including a friendship with Vladimir N Lysenko the former Chairman of the Republic Party & President of the Institute of modern policy. Quickly gaining skills in International negotiating at a young age made Tollie set his sights for new challenges in the future. I always have felt that there is no obstacle or challenge that can not be solved as long as you can think outside the box and always try new ideas.
Tollie has formed strong relationships in Russia and everywhere he travels. His Partner Sergey Okutin Deputy Minister of The Ministry of Taxation for Russia is a strong voice of Tollies talents and abilities.
From the University of Oklahoma, Lyceum 320 Moscow Russia, Moscow State University, Center for International Studies and countless forums and seminars Tollie believes education is vital in a changing global society and education evolves everyday he strives to learn and debate new ideas day after day.
Tollie speaks truth, his words can strike lightning, and his actions are his thunder. Why is there so much buzz around Tollie? Simply put, with Tollie you get 110% pure energy and focus, complete love empowered with laughter. And, hes only just begun!

Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, told reporters at a press conference he was reluctant to start developing software applications for consumers, and had resisted the eager Google founders' wishes for six years before Chrome saw the light of day. Did he have it right then? Should Google be focusing more on developing software, or defending its core business (search) from its competitors?
