The annual AppNexus Summit will be taking place next Wednesday in San Francisco and will feature product announcements, new exchange innovations, and industry speakers (including Yellowhammer co-founder Hagan Major).
Hagan will be taking the stage with AppNexus’s Director of Product Management, Dave Himrod, to discuss RTB optimization for campaigns and placements. He requests that Yellowhammer well-wishers and his “fans” (read: family members) show up to laugh loudly at his jokes and riot in the streets immediately following his presentation. Please, no autograph requests.
If you can’t make the summit in person, the live video will be streamed on the AppNexus website.
Senior AdOps exec Alex Blazer’s birthday went completely overlooked yesterday. While we usually throw a nice party for birthdays, someone overlooked Alex’s.
By the time 3pm rolled around, he realized that the surprise pizza party he was anticipating was never going to happen - he proceeded to order himself a large pie with everything on it and sat at his desk stuffing his face, listening to Mad World by Gary Jules. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4
Forgetting the holiday spirit, the neighborhood board has officially rejected our proposal for a beautiful sign above our office entrance:
As you can see, it would have been unobtrusive and pleasing to look at, but the board apparently thought otherwise. Our emissary that was sent for approval was told that opposition to our bird sign was the first thing the board agreed on unanimously since 1983.
Apparently, though, it’s okay for our neighbors to have eye-sores like these tattered old remnants. We’re not naming names (nevermind, we are), but Elisha Framed Pictures and tattered sign company that looks like a garage, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
