Meet the tech company performing ad injections for Big Cable

    Next month, Front Porch will provide what it is calling a "Network
    Monetization Demo" at a San Francisco trade show. The company, founded
    in 1998, will demonstrate how Wi-Fi providers--cable companies,
    carriers, retail outlets, and resorts--can financially capitalize on
    JavaScript-injected ad campaigns and "other methodologies," Vazquez
    said.  "Front Porch is the worldwide leader in Wi-Fi monetization. Its
    services use the patented PorchLight technology to generate millions
    of dollars for thousands of retailers, venues, and service providers
    in the US and abroad," the company said in a blog post Friday.
