I have discussed the need to place what MRC is doing in the context of its current work on cross-platform targeting measurement, including the ad/media industry's 3MS initiative.  We need to invite independent outside experts who can help us discuss MRC.

As you may know, MRC is coordinating the 3MS (Making Measurement Make Sense) initiative "created by the ANA, the 4As and the IAB to tackle the big issues surrounding cross-media measurement in a digital age.  Those steps include the shift from an ad impression served model to one of “viewable impressions” – a standard in which at least 50% of an ad is viewable to a consumer for at least one second, the transition to an “e-GRP” for cross-platform measurement." [cite via Mediapost]

Cross platform measurement tracking with analytics used to improve targeting in campaigns has a direct impact on our work, I believe.  I am happy to ask leading online ad scholars whether they wish to be on a call if we have a MRC discussion.
