wow really cool idea

As zheng3 pointed out, the banner is the bad guy here.

I envision google ads in your gmail box about things on thingiverse, which are pure ads. Brave new world.

Oh, you are absolutely right.

I have not noticed the banner first, it was just gone too well, with the featured Nokia thing. Now as the featured thing changed, the banner is more then obvious. I dont remember banner at thingiverse (at that prominent place). Before that it was a Makerbot challenge, but it was in late january. But before this challenge there were no banner at all.

It began. And I have a very bad feeling about where this advertisement leads.

....interesting development though. My instant feeling was "this is bad" but, on reflection, why? They're creating and sharing for free, just like us, but with an ulterior motive.

We makers still have the ability to choose what we browse on thingiverse and as far as advertising goes, I'd say this is at the thin end of the wedge.

As laszlo says though, what does the thick end of the wedge represent? I admire Nokia for their marketing creativity (I'd previously never given a thought to their phone, but I'll probably look it up now), but I worry about what Thingiverse might become.

Ultimately though, the cynic (not necessarily myself!) would say that thingiverse is just a marketing vehicle for the makerbot family. But it's their vehicle and perhaps we get a little protective over it?

I totally include myself in that category - but when something is good, it's natural to want it to not only stay good, but become awesome!

It's great to see that Nokia has a marketroid who's on the ball enough to partner with an up-and-comer like MakerBot, but I'd like to have an option in my user settings to avoid Things that are obvious advertisements.

Why this is an advertisement, and the shitload of iphone4 cases are not?
The cases itself do not have an advertisement on it.

I do agree, it is the first sign of something potentially bad. But not this very thing. Yet.
