No publisher wants to plant a sign saying "Danger: Beware of Unsafe Content" which inherently scares off a revenue source. But there may be a little bit of not seeing the forest for the trees in the sell-side’s aversion to brand safety technology integrations. I’m not the first person to suggest that publishers might…

The Future of Audio

Mary Meeker Shows the Promise of Podcasts - If Spotify Doesn’t Take Over. Publishers took the medium mainstream, and shouldn’t let a tech platform take all the profit. Mary Meeker’s recent Internet Trends report showed that 70 million Americans listened to at least one podcast per month in 2018 - more than triple the number from a decade before.

An enormous gap divides our industry. On one side are the likes of Google and Facebook, the so-called walled gardens. On the other side is everyone else. For publishers, Facebook Instant Articles is a poisoned chalice. It forces them to surrender their audience data and compete with Facebook for traffic. Meanwhile, Instant Articles lines the pockets of the social media giant and helps it develop even greater targeting abilities. The walled gardens derive their power from their goldmines of data.
