This week we’re joined by Rand Fishkin, Wizard of Moz explaining what Net Neutrality is and why it’s important both for digital marketers and for each of us as citizens. We then dive into a report from Forrester heralding “The end of advertising as we know it!”, and on to the future of advertising in a post-interruption, post-popup, mobile and voice centered world. We also consider Google’s ‘Project Owl’, a much-needed attempt to improve the credibility of search results and crack down on fake news.
