UPDATE: After a little poking around, it appears the page has been online for some time, though noone i've yet spoken to knew about it. What is New is that ASK are about to launch a PPC Program, it doesn't have an official page yet, but will have a min bid of 10c and will start out with 4 positions but will add a further 5 once they "officially" launch it.
Sorry for the slight misinformation. This stuff is coming in from various sources, most of whom don't want to be named heh...
Im not sure whether the next links are new or not, but i've not seen them before: MaxOnline which is owned by ASK, are also touting a premium end publisher program for contextual ads. You need minimum 500,000 impressions a month to apply.
More details as they come in, if anyone can add more, please do.
