Quotes from Linda Ouyang: 

“I grew up in a very entrepreneurial mobile tech-forward household. So the apple didn’t fall very far from the tree actually.

It’s become more and more interconnected but specifically on the publisher side, I think the privacy changes with Apple, while the grilling stuff  must be faced together, it’s causing some innovation. It’s a little bit like Renaissance.

I think a lot of what we’ve seen is coming into fruition this Holiday season.”
