The research, prototypes, product releases, and general momentum of the community have jumped an intensity level recently, and we are here for it!

Much of this is due to GftW grantees getting deeper into the work but it also speaks to an overall advancement of this technology and how to use it. This week we are highlighting some of what is that fast-growing body of collective knowledge.

The research actually says...

Denisa Reshef Kera is a Senior Researcher at Tel Aviv University working on the project Effect of Monetization Visibility on User Behavior and has been posting must-read research about how users want to interact with Web Monetized content. They are looking for more projects to partner with on research. Is that your project?
