the carson systems that you mention for teaching web app making have been dumb founded on their own website.

Just visit this link
and read the last two comments

They made a ad system and are rdeay to launch and then someone made them realise they havent thought of click fraud when their system is based upon pay per click they havent even replied to that comment yet been 6 days

how can you teach web app making when you can blunder like that?

Raghav: Assuming The Future of Web Apps follows the same format as the London conference of the same name Carson Workshops hosted this February, the variety of speakers will all have experience in building and deploying web applications. Even if they have ‘blundered’ on the click-fraud example this doesn’t invalidate the conference as whole.

Also, whilst 6 days may have passed since the comment was made, this doesn’t mean they’re not actively thinking of a solution - maybe they have got one but it’s not quite refined enough to discuss publically yet? It’d be poor form to second-guess and then dismiss them on something which is still unfinished, as this is.

Perhaps they’re rather busy getting ready with the launch and haven’t had time to comment. How do you know that they haven’t considered click fraud? Oh that’s right, you don’t.

I’ve attended three Carson events and they’ve all been excellent.

Doesn’t anyone else find it ironic that Text-Link-Ads uses image ads pretty much exclusively (that I’ve seen).
