"Data Natives: Conferences are the Universities of the Future"

"Programmatic Ads: The Metrics are Fake. The Grift is Real"
Nandini Jammi is a partner, organizer and original member of Sleeping Giants, a social media campaign dedicated to making bigotry less profitable. Sleeping Giants formed in the weeks after the 2016 elections, alerting brands and businesses via Facebook and Twitter that their ads were appearing alongside racist and bigoted content on Breitbart. Over 4,000 advertisers have blacklisted Breitbart since the effort began. The campaign has grown to nearly 300,000 members across Twitter and Facebook working together to hold both advertisers and platforms accountable for the rhetoric they fund, distribute and profit from. Nandini is a University of Maryland alum and works primarily with B2B software businesses as a copywriter and marketing consultant.
