Adverganza's Monday morning picks, 10.22.07

Wherein I scan the headlines, so you don't have to:

From Advertising Age (They seem not to have updated the "This Week's Issue" page, so don't go there unless you're feeling nostalgic—for last week. I can't find some new content, like Garfield, but will update later):

—Who the hot independent digital shops are. Well, after this story, they may not be independent for long.
—"Bum, bum, bum, another one bites the dust." And this time it's Yahoo CMO Carrie Dunaway.
—Ouch, that hurts! Coke making t-shirts out of recycled bottles.
—A new video show: Ad Age in 3 minutes.
—Jonah Bloom on why he hated Al Gore's ANA speech, and why Randy Rothenberg should do some ANA programming.

From Adweek:

Ten emerging agency talents. Let's see how long they stay at their current jobs.
—What media agency execs really think about C3.
Scion's alternative media channels, which don't include what many think of as alternative media channels.
Barbara Lippert guffaws over the new Jeep Liberty campaign.

From Mediapost:

Wal-Mart threatens legal action on sites that post sales deals before the Monday before Black Friday. The sites are fighting back.
Valerie Bertinelli joins Rachael Ray's show as a "celebrity content buddy." Huh?

From The New York Times:

—If only sites could get their audience counts straight.
—The French may not love EuroDisney, but they love "Ratatouille."
—Why film directors are showing a renewed interest in directing commercials.
—AT&T offers the Napster catalog for wireless download.

From The Wall Street Journal (subscription required, unless otherwise noted):
