Hi Neil,

Great to see a post from you again! And of course, so totally know what you mean about being busy off boards. Sigh. But inspired to see new posts from both you and Matt.

Meanwhile, a couple questions.

You wrote:

<It’s worth highlighting that TubeMogul automatically evaluates up to 500,000 ad slots each second>

Wow! They evaluate 500,000 ad slots per second. Any understanding of how that is done? Obviously, must be some kind of software program. (I don't imagine a group of millennial math wiz genius ad analysts sitting around viewing slots and doing advanced computations and considerations in fractional nanoseconds. But if a computer program, what exactly would it look for (eye on site, hits from ads on site, demographics?).

You mention that Google requires all advertisers to go through their channel to advertise on Youtube. Would those customers who do so then naturally use google channel to locate ad space outside of YouTube or is their any likelihood that TUBE might share some of same customers who do advertise on YouTube in other areas of the web?

Who are some of TUBE's biggest clients currently?

You mentioned in answer to Ears question that you discovered TUBE as a TMF rec. But I don't recall you're ever revealing where the original tickers offered for group to analyze in the "early" days of club. Each week (to start!) (crazy, in retrospect) "the computer" would toss out another random company for analysis, very interesting assortment (ATRO, LAD, DY, DPLO, and more), the source of pull, you promised (I think) to reveal at a later date. Would that time be now?
