AMA with Johnny Ryan
Welcome to the third post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs.
The ongoing AMA series on Reddit is a six-month long event that features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams. The goal of the series, which will run until January 2019, is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members—especially those who operate largely behind the scenes—a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work.
The most recent AMA took place on September 5th with Dr. Johnny Ryan, Brave’s Chief Policy and Industry Relations Officer. Over the course of the AMA, Johnny fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics such as the GDPR, the state of the digital advertising industry, and what he believes the evolving regulatory landscape means for BAT and Brave.
Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post.
The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, September 19th, and will feature Sergey Zhukovsky and Joel Reis, both Senior Software Engineers at Brave who work primarily on the mobile versions of the browser.
