Briggs is responsible for several innovations in digital marketing. In 1995, Briggs joined Wired, as Director of Research, he created the first study of Web banner advertising effectiveness. The research is notable because it was the first application of random sampling online, used design of experiments to measure the in-market impact of online advertising.

At MBInteractive, Briggs continued his work on marketing effectiveness creating the cited 1997 IAB Advertising Effectiveness Study. and inventing an early version of behavior targeting with leading online ad servers.

During this period, Briggs coined the marketing terms “brand impact” and "Surround sound marketing.” In 2000, Briggs founded Marketing Evolution. At Marketing Evolution, Briggs created a new form of research called “cross media research.” The research, referred to as "XMOS" for a time began with The Dove Nutrium Bar study. It was the first of its kind in that it showed the ROI of online advertising side by side with Television in Magazine, thus provided insight on the share of the marketing budget that should be devoted to Online advertising in comparison to other media; the cross-media research expanded to other brands, was publicized globally by the IAB and Microsoft, with Briggs co-presenting the results of the cross-media research with Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer at various locations around the world. In January 2006, BusinessWeek’s cover story, entitled “Math Will Rock Your World” featured Briggs ROI marketing analysis; that year, Briggs expand the research connecting online advertising to offline sales and published the cross-media measurement for the Ford F-150 campaign launch.

Briggs and co-author Greg Stuart analyzed three-dozen blue-chip brand campaigns on behalf of marketing CMOs and calculated that 37 percent of advertising investment was wasted. Reasons for the waste include failure to understand underlying customer motivations for buying, ineffective messages and inefficient media mix investment. Briggs and Stuart suggestions for reducing waste in marketing were amplified by Bob Liodice, President of the Association of National Advertisers in an op-ed in Ad Age entitled "Marketers, Get Serious About Accountability, their suggestion about improving ROI through systematic investment in innovation was emphasized by Mark Renshaw in his Ad Age op-ed entitled "The'70/20/10 Rule' and Why You Need ItWhat Sticks is required reading at leading Universities including Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard.

Kristoff Vernard

Kristoff Vernard is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He has been involved with the Fantastic Four, as enemy and short-term member. Kristoff first appeared in John Byrne's "back to the basics" Fantastic Four run in issue #247 in October 1982. Kristoff served as heir to Doctor Doom, occasional ruler of Latveria, a probationary member of the Fantastic Four, temporal adventurer alongside Nathaniel Richards; the character next appears in Fantastic Four #258-259 and first appears as the second Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four #278-279. After a few scattered appearances, Kristoff Vernard becomes a semi-regular cast member in Fantastic Four #400, he reappeared in FF #2 ruling Latveria in Doom's absence. An alternate future version appeared as an adult in the MC2 universe, beginning in A-Next #5, followed by scattered appearances, but was only featured in Fantastic Five #1-5. Doctor Doom received an entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update'89 #2, the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z #12.

After being ousted as leader of Latveria, Dr. Doom returned to the country with the Fantastic Four to overthrow its then-leader, Zorba. Doom met his mother. While conversing with them, Kristoff's mother was killed by one of Zorba's robots for violating curfew. Furious at the death of a woman, standing in his presence and therefore should have been regarded as being under his protection, Doom destroyed the robot and defeated Zorba. Dr. Doom took him to live in Castle Doom. Following the apparent murder of Dr. Doom by Terrax, Doom's robots took Kristoff and brainwashed and implanted within him Doom's mental patterns and detailed memories. However, he stopped the process. Now believing that he was the real Doom, Kristoff's first action was attempting to destroy the Fantastic Four by blowing up the Baxter Building, a plan drawn from memories of the real Dr. Doom's plot to kill the FF while he was teamed with the Sub-Mariner; the FF survived the explosion thanks to the force fields of Sue Richards, something Kristoff had not anticipated because he had stopped the memory transfer at a point before Sue Richards had developed her force field abilities.

The FF traveled to Doomstadt and defeated their adversary. To the team's surprise, the armor held not Doom but a child, whom the team took with them. Kristoff would be imprisoned in Four Freedoms Plaza, the new home of the Four, following his destruction of the Baxter Building, he was still convinced that he was Doom and Mister Fantastic hoped to restore him to his normal personality. At this time the real Dr. Doom "returned from the dead". Kristoff would free himself with the aid of a Doombot sent to kidnap Franklin Richards, son of Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman, by the resurrected Dr. Doom. Doom wanted to use Franklin as a bargaining chip for the soul of his mother, held captive by Mephisto. Although still a child of about four or five, Franklin had powerful psychic powers which had enabled him to defeat Mephisto in a previous encounter; this time, Doom's power inhibitors prevented Franklin from fighting the demon, who agreed to the bargain. But at that moment, Kristoff, in full armor, burst in with an army of Doombots and challenged Doom, whom he thought to be an impostor.

Meanwhile, the FF, who had followed Kristoff in order to rescue Franklin and Mister Fantastic used a device of his own to enable his son to fight back against Mephisto. As the two Dooms battled, the Doombots stood by, unsure which to aid since they both claimed to be Doom and the brainscans seemed to confirm this; the battle soon ended. Her imprisonment in the nether realms was one of the few failures that Doom would admit to and he said as much to those present; the robots perceived this as doubt and a lack of confidence meaning Kristoff could only be the real ever-confident Dr. Doom; the Doombots turned on their creator and Dr. Doom was forced to flee. Kristoff ruled Latveria as Doom once again. To their surprise, he let, he stayed the regent until the original infiltrated the Castle and uttered a codeword that reverted Kristoff to his original personality. Doom reclaimed his throne. However, he was placed in stasis in a Tibetan Monastery. Nathaniel Richards revived Kristoff along with Boris, Doom's former guardian, the Tomorrow Man in disguise.

The former dictator returned with Richards and the Invisible Woman, where he became a monitored member of the Fantastic Four, close friends with Cassandra Lang, daughter of Ant-Man who had joined the team following the "death" of Mister Fantastic. He took his leave from the group to go with Nathaniel Richards, he was reunited with Doom when the alternate future offspring of Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers called Hyperstorm, attacked the Fantastic Four where he chose to help them instead of attacking them at their weakest. The group defeated Hyperstorm. Following the Onslaught saga and Nathaniel tried to collect the now-missing FF's equipment located in the Negative Zone, they returned to Latveria, Kristoff with hopes of assuming the throne once again, but they were met with resistance by the Dreadknight and found Doombots in charge. The duo were tricked by S. H. I. E. L. D. Into defeating them. Kristof

Coral Smith

Coral Jeanne Smith is an American reality television personality, known as a cast member on MTV's The Real World: Back to New York, for her subsequent appearances on various seasons of The Real World's spin-off show, The Challenge. Her most recent Challenge appearance was on Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Gauntlet III, which aired in early 2008. On April 2, 2008, Smith appeared on the first Real World Awards Bash, winning the award for "Roommate You Love To Hate." In 2013, Smith returned to television and MTV as host of The Real World: Portland on-air aftershows and the season's reunion show. Smith was a 21-year-old part-time student and nanny living in San Francisco when she decided on a whim to audition for MTV's long-running reality TV series, The Real World and Road Rules, she and two dozen finalists were housed together for a casting special leading up to the selection. During her stay at the casting house, Smith came into conflict with finalist Ellen Cho. Smith was selected as a cast member for The Real World, which would be set in New York, the first season of the show since 1992 to be set there.

During Smith's season on The Real World, which aired in 2001, she came into conflict with Mike Mizanin over views he related to Smith from his uncle, who opined that black people were slow and uneducated. Although Mizanin attempted to disown the comments as those of his uncle and their other housemate, Malik Cooper, who are both black, were offended. Coral and the other housemates went on to teach Mizanin about black culture, such as the life of Malcolm X. Observing that every season of The Real World features cast members in archetypal roles, Smith asserts that she was the "bitch" of her season, though she insists that her use of this label is meant to connote her assertiveness and outspokenness, not lack of likability. After filming The Real World, Smith went to work at a rape crisis center. Smith has appeared on six seasons of the spin-off series Real World/Road Rules Challenge, has made it to the final mission on four of those Challenges. During Fresh Meat, Smith's partner, Evan Starkman, developed an abdominal hernia.

Smith herself sustained a leg injury, the producers of the show removed them from the competition. This marked Smith's first Challenge. Much curiosity and speculation has arisen over Smith's relationship with Abram Boise from Road Rules: South Pacific during Battle of the Sexes 2. In response to a question by an MTV rep, Smith said: I wouldn't expect Abram to invest his time or pursue a woman like myself, that's so mouthy and such a feminist I believe that I'm a strong woman and I believe that a lot of my morals and how I live my life was opposite than his. I feel like he has come into a reality about meeting new people with me and I'm happy to be in his life, I'm happy to teach him and help him, but it's not hard. We're going through this weird racial thing, he doesn't bring it up and it's not an issue with us, which makes it more wonderful. It's just right and it's something that happened naturally, he didn't have to fight against this racist thing. I give all the credit to Abram for his changes, for who he is now.

I believe that it was his ability to be open to other people's words. We both get angry and we both are sensitive and we both put up this front and inside, I believe Abram is one of the kindest and most gentle people I've met, and I think it was his ability to get in touch with his own kind, gentle side that allowed him to like me anyway, despite my big giant mouth and how bitchy I can be. And I think that we found a common ground there, because I was open to him, I feel like he was able to open up to me, and when Abram and I opened up to each other, it was a beautiful, beautiful friendship that I've never experienced before, ever. I've never met anyone like Abram. Never, people underestimate him all the time. However, Smith indicated in another interview that she and Boise were not involved in a romantic relationship, that any appearance to that effect was engineered through the use of selective editing on the part of the show's producers in order to elicit ratings. In 2005 Smith appeared on Battle of the Network Reality Stars.

In January 2007 Smith appeared on Camp Reality. In January 2008, Smith appeared on The Gauntlet III, she voluntarily left towards the end of the Challenge. This marked Smith's second Challenge. At the end of that season, at The Gauntlet III Reunion Special, Smith explained that she left because she was unwilling to tolerate what she perceived as disreputable behavior by her teammates. On April 2, 2008, Smith appeared on the first Real World Awards Bash, winning the award for the "Roommate You Love To Hate". In 2013, Smith returned to television as host of The Real World: Portland on-air aftershows and the season's reunion show. Smith was present at a gay pride event at Paramount's Great America amusement park in 2007, which prompted in interview with OUTlook magazine in which she explained that her sexual orientation was at that time "very cloudy" and she was "venturing toward my lesbian qualities. It's been a long time coming."Smith gave birth to her daughter, Charlie Beatrice, in June 2013.
