AppNexus, the NAI, and the Future of Self-Regulation

The following is a guest blog post from David Wainberg, Privacy & Policy Counsel for AppNexus and NAI Board member.

NAI – WC3 Position Paper Post

As many of you know, the NAI has been an active participant in the W3C meetings focused on Do Not Track. Recently, David Wainberg, our Counsel and Senior Director of Technology, submitted a position paper to the organization as input to their “Do Not Track and Beyond” Workshop scheduled for November 26-27 in Berkeley, California. (More information about the workshop can be found on the W3C website.) In support of our mission, we are planning to attend this event to ensure that the third party voice is represented and heard.

Great to Be Back!

On June 20th, I returned to the NAI as Counsel & Senior Director of Technology. (As many of you know, I previously worked for the NAI, but left last year for a job at AppNexus.) People keep asking why I came back. I was in a great position at an exciting, fast-growing company that, like many NAI members, was innovating and growing like crazy. , Why would I give that up? It was an incredibly tough decision. However, I realized I couldn't pass up this opportunity to take a leading role in charting the industry's course through the very tricky policy waters ahead.
