My current gig is at AdMob and we recently re-did the home page and took out a small little widget that had a live scrolling ticker of actual ad requests. When we redesigned the home page there just wasn’t room for it anymore. A lot of people were sad to see it go. Except now we’ve brought it back in full force! We’ve even been mentioned on TechCrunch! (A little dream of mine for a while, not because I like Arrington or anything, but because it’s the 4th largest blog.) Here’s my original post on our company’s website.
The page is a combination of Google Maps, YUI, Ext JS, Fusion Gadgets, and our own internal API. The prototype was thrown together in a couple hours and then design, marketing, and our CEO Omar got involved and it evolved into what you see today. The joys of working at a fast paced company, I love it! 🙂
