Hello, Chair Inc. was founded in 2006 by Luke Iannini, Mike Jacobs and Kevin Corcoran to explore opportunities in applied machine learning and internet advertising. After receiving funding from Y-Combinator in 2007, we produced Adpinion, one of the first advertising networks to utilize user feedback to drive personalized targeting.

Adpinion is a service that targets advertisements to specific audiences by letting users say what they want to see. Essentially, Adpinion takes a company ad, places it into their system (where related ads and people are grouped together), and employs user feedback from websites to place the ad into a relevant group. In this way, Adpinion seeks to achieve target advertising via direct user feedback as opposed to guessing what people are interested in from their web history. Also, Adpinion does not collect any personal information when receiving user feedback.
