Despite all the problems with online advertising, ads are not going away. Advertising is fundamental to the modern Internet economy.
Marc Goldberg is the CEO of Trust Metrics, a company that provides whitelisting for advertisers. A whitelist is a list of domains that are acceptable to run your advertisements on.

Marc joins the show to describe how to build and scale a system for reviewing websites and judging whether they are safe to run ads against.
