  • Google Makes First Amendment Challenge To Publish FISA Request Counts Google wants to be transparent to its users about the number of super-secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) requests it is served by the US government — and it is claiming a First Amendment right to do so, in a new legal challenge the company has mounted. The Washington Post has news of the filing, along with [...]
  • Digital Advertising Agencies 2013: A Buyer’s Guide Many marketers opt to work with an agency to manage some or all of their digital marketing initiatives.

  • Canadian Govt. Asks Google To Explain Google Glass Privacy Google Glass isn’t publicly available yet, and even the Explorer edition is supposed to only be for US residents, but that’s not stopping the Canadian government from getting out in front of what it considers to be several privacy issues surrounding the device.

  • Is Google’s Universal Analytics A Game Changer? Google’s Universal Analytics is now available to the public, and some have speculated that it will change the way businesses use data. But, is Universal Analytics (UA) truly a game changer? Many of the benefits promised by UA hinge on two new wrinkles in the platform: 1) the ability to get data into UA from [...]
  • Forget About Mobile Cannibalization: Its Rise Bodes Well For All The media business has grown to a certain level of maturity. The ecosystem affords brands, marketers and agencies a vast tableau of options, along with tools to plan, operate and optimize across channels, platforms and screens. Yet, as an integrated digital marketer, I’m always surprised how much we tend to sweat the mix, scrutinize the [...]
