I don't think the impartiality is a good idea at all.  There are all 
sorts of companies that I don't particularly want to advertise on Evolt. 
Sure, we say we aren't endorsing them, but I'd prefer to give exposure 
to companies/individuals that don't suck.  I like the idea of text ads 
on the site (I actually click on some of them over at metafilter), but I 
think we ought to be selective about which ads we accept.  Make them 
work for it dammit!
