    Hi, First time poster and new hq overview user here. Please forgive if I’ve managed to post in the wrong /r, but I’m hoping you all might have some insight on a project I’ve been working on. Some Context I’ll avoid going into technical detail here, but I’ve developed an intermediary network service that can be used to defeat DNS and browser-based ad blockers that are currently effective against display ads. It’s still in development and I intend to sell it as a reasonably-priced service that imposes no additional impact to user privacy. The Catch Many ad suppliers like Google tend to redirect users who click the ads to a URI on the ad network that allows metrics to be collected prior to being delivered to the advertisers content. Since the first redirect in this chain is the ad network, it’s likely to be detected and stopped by DNS-based blockers. It is possible to work around this issue but it would require minor collaboration on part of ad networks to avoid botching metrics…and I’m not holding my breath on that front. The Question Do you see value in the service described above even if the display is shown to users in a non-interactive form? Do you think your current employer would be interested in such a service? – by hq overview adedgeio – –
