We’re past the halfway mark of 2021. What will 2022 be “The Year of”? Metamorphosis
If you were not in this work, what would you like to attempt?
Teaching! One of the greatest gifts in this world is to empower others to be successful and I couldn’t think of a more noble pursuit than fostering education and learning.
If Ad-Tech gods exist, what would you like them to change/make better for us all?
Many a sacrificial offering would be made at the altar of digital if we could get a set of unified federal privacy laws for the sake of standardizing process and compliance.
Give me a hot take on where the data industry should be headed in the next three years:
The industry should be heading up and to the right! Within three years, we should see advances in data technology, data privacy, and, equally as important, data quality. There will be better optics as to how measurement and attribution can work in a cookieless world. The here-to-stay publishers will have successfully pivoted to an authenticated traffic model laying the groundwork for other publishers to model and follow. A federal privacy law will be passed (but not yet enacted). Oh, and data scientists will be ferried around in flying cars.
