IAB Video: Wenda Harris Millard's 'Pork Bellies' Speech

This story was written by David Kaplan.
In a keynote presentation at the Interactive Advertising Bureau's Ecosystem 2.0 conference last month, new IAB chairperson Wenda Harris Millard sparked a new round of questioning over the rise of ad networksadmonishing fellow media executives not to sell ad inventory like pork bellies, i.e., to the lowest bidder. Rather than a declaration of war against remnant ad nets, Millard, president of media for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (NYSE: MSO), urged web publishers to educate themselves as well as marketers and agencies about the best ways to use online advertising: "We must educate one and all about the value our digital offerings provide marketers and not trade our advertising space like pork bellies."
