Good overview of the product. Very knowledable presenters. They spent some time framing the industry, but I would have appreciated a little more about competitiors, different models, etc. A little less commercial and a little more education might have been better, but overall, a very worthwhile investment of my time

There was a decent amount of detail about some of Google's strategies for ultra low-latency auctioning of internet advertising, and I had the pleasure that comes from hearing smart people talk about something they know a lot about. If I was a little turned off by three references to the "invisible hand" of the market, or words to the same effect, well, that is my own failure and my own problem.

Interesting talk.. Continuing the discussion, I am wondering if the ad serving systems uses Google's new semantic search algos to help match the content and user with the ad.
Also wondering how much the target or landing page content of the ad is used to determine the suitability of the ad for the user rather than just keywords or the ad itself.

Like at midnight? These things fill up faster than the NJ Transit at 5:30pm and it's rather disappointing usually, although I have been blessed a few times to make it.
Meetup.com needs to consider this and develop some time dilatation RSVP feature (yeah I stole that idea from EVE but it's a good idea).
