Daniel on 'Future of Advertising' Panel at VentureBeat's MobileBeat Conference

I'll be the first to tell you that I don't know all that much about the state of mobile advertising today, which is the first thing I said on the panel I was just on at VentureBeat's MobileBeat conference.  I have a perspective as a developer of apps from my past life running a mobile consulting business (which we've since sold), and as a publisher of over 7,000 apps through our AppMakr platform, which integrates AdMob, Millennial Media, Medialets and custom ad units.

I have, however, been getting deep into the world of DSPs, SSPs and RTB (here's a great article about how those crazy acronyms work), and with Socialize, we're building a next-generation Interest Graph out of thousands of mobile apps.  This will provide deep user data for advertisers, which is why I participated on this panel, along with:

Devindra Hardawar, the lead MobileBeat Writer for VentureBeat led the discussion focusing on the past, present, and future waves of mobile advertising, as well as an overview of where mobile advertising is headed.

Here's a video of the panel (sorry audio is so low -- crank it up!):

White hat posts on Mark Zuckerbergs Wall to prove flaw in Facebook

On Saud

Ethical hackers or white hats like Palestinian programmer Khalil Shreateh get paid $500 to expose potential flaws in Facebook's programming. Khalil says he sent two requests to get the $500 bucks he sought, but Facebook ignored him. A Facebook software engineer Matthew Jones said that Khalil's initial report was poorly worded, although he acknowledged that the company should have pressed for more information. "We get hundreds of reports every day... Many of our best reports come from people whose English isn’t great — though this can be challenging, it’s something we work with just fine and we have paid out over $1 million to hundreds of reporters. However, many of the reports we get are nonsense or misguided, and even those … provide some modicum of reproduction instructions.”

So I guess it prompted Khalil, the unemployed Palestinian to post the following on the Founders Wall using the flaw he was trying to the money for:

Dear Mark Zuckerberg,

First sorry for breaking your privacy and post to your wall, i has no other choice to make after all the reports I sent to Facebook team.

My name is KHALIL, from Palestine...
