It finally happened!

It finally happened!
Today, after nineteen years of surfing the World Wide Web, I clicked on a banner ad!

(Note to historians: it was an ad for the Google Nexus Seven tablet. I wanted to see if it was a new version and if it had anything interesting. But all the sales page informed was that it was £200 and had a "sharp screen".)

Thanks... but I feel like I have lost some nerd status.

I just heard on NPR that only 1 out of 10,0000 college students will click on a banner ad. My guess is that one student is drunk.

One device that has caused me to click on ads by mistake... my iPad. If I scroll as long article sometimes my finger will tap an ad and off I go.
