SP, No worries, you didn't insult me in the least. Excuse me, I should qualify that: I am not aware of any insults you may have hurled my way.
RE: RE: From iii
As Fuzz mentioned Suranga was there he kept his head down throughout the AGM and appeared to be making a lot of notes. He spoke twice; once in response to his role where he mentioned that his remuneration was the same as the non exec's and that he advised and made himself available to the BOD and Still got involved in product/Dev for days/weeks/months as required. He also answered a question as to whether we still have an unfair advantage where he highlighted the current limitations of cookies in the mobile sphere. I don't think publicly challenging him on his involvement in the response would have been received very well... Dawg we're in agreement about SC and I have my theories but none of which I would discuss publicly. Maybe the BOD felt he shouldn't get publicly involved but that's enough on that point. It was not my intention to insult your intelligence regarding Mercedes; it is because you took insurance in Nov that I consider you such an informed asset to this BB. The competition would have most definitely taken notice of the blog when it came out but didn't know what was around the corner as far as industry wide concern resulting in ad $ being redistributed by agencies and advertisers away from programmatic evident in our Q1 and FUEL'S Q2. As I see it the difference between us and the competition is that BE largely criticised us for legacy issues of an acquisition of a company whose inception predated us and highlighted previous write-ups predating 2008, post which our rebuttal stated the industry underwent significant change. While BE could have been hired to attack any of our competitors I don't think he would have been able to do so in the same vein because of their adolescence. And as such I don't think the competition foresaw the damage that the blog would do to the whole industry (to the extent is has). Brian appears very much of the opinion that in the programmatic land grab it's not just who's got the best tech but who goes the *furthest* to prove the viewability metrics, detect and prevent fraud who will ultimately win. For me the key point Brian and Dan have made is that we are leading the way in defining the "gold standard" for "premium content" as WBB noted (thanks) and Erol from Forensiq said "...so to see Blinkx lead with fraud detection and prevention is a very promising sign." I'm not a scary smart techie (although I'd like to think reasonably competent), I don't know what's going on in the back offices of our competitors and am very aware that our competitors share many of the same partnerships, are looking to expand on them and develop their relationships and tools. Put simply I think the blog gave us the chance to get Kroll to look under every rock and I think this gave us a head start in creating a strategy for transparency. I think our partnership with Forensiq is an example. But hey I'm conjecturing and may well be very wrong, in which case maybe I should also st
RE: Becky / gdog
Thanks for your replies. It seemed to me to be either good news or there has been some fundamental change or a bit of both.
RE: Becky / gdog
Likewise I really have no idea what it means to us. The encouraging bit is average 6 page views per visitor - that's a real quality indicator.

Thanks for posting link,.... one of those pointers we were looking for ("It's been a long summer and the waiting's been tedious but we should get some pointers within the next six weeks or so"). BW
