Hi Thomas and Co-Chairs,

Per today's Working Group conference call, where I was not allowed to volunteer to draft language for the work product of this group (the spec), I am following up yet once again on my multiple inquiries in the thread below and elsewhere.  To date, I don't believe we have ever received a formal reply from the co-chairs or the W3C on this issue, yet we (the IAB) were specifically invited to participate in this Working Group by the W3C from the early days of the working group.  We have been participating faithfully all along, per your request and at the request of several W3C members (listed below).  But if you don't want us to participate now in what is supposed to be an open multi-stakeholder process to define a spec that will affect industry, please make that clear now in writing.  Otherwise, please kindly formalize our participation as invited experts, so we may fully participate in this process.  I look forward to your prompt reply.

Thank You Kindly,

Chris

Hi Thomas,

I hope this email finds you well.  I'm just following up on this thread again, as I have yet to receive a reply after your June 22nd note below.  I believe the ball is still in your court, but if you see it differently, please let us know.

Kind Regards,

Chris

Thanks, Chris, for your note -- I'd love to catch up further about this today, but unfortunately, I'm about to run out of the room to catch my cab to the airport.

Let's find time to talk on 2 July, as I'll be at a conference with 14h days between now and next Friday.

Thanks,

Thanks Kimon!

So, with the removal of all known barriers now, it would be great to know if there is anything else sill holding back this decision at the W3C today?

To summarize, we have seen formal proposals for our inclusion as "invited experts" to this working group now from the following W3C members:

  *   JC Cannon, Microsoft (before the last face-to-face)
  *   Shane Wiley, Yahoo!
  *   Marc Groman, NAI
  *   Kimon Zorbas, IAB EU

We look forward to participating under these terms.

Best Regards,

Chris

Subject: IAB US participation as expert

Dear all,

we would support the invitation of our IAB US colleagues as “Invited Experts” to the Tracking Protection Working Group, specifically:

- Mike Zaneis, SVP of Public Policy at IAB
- Chris Mejia, Director of Ad Technology and Digital Supply Chain Solutions at IAB
- Brendan Riordan-Butterworth, Director of Ad Technology at IAB

IAB US’s expertise of the US market would be invaluable to the Working Group and allowing them to contribute as "full members" might help consolidate  industry views.

Kind regards,
Kimon
