Mark was very interesting, not only because he described things I never heard him say before before about his sale to Yahoo, what he was doing the second he made his first billion, how he values the Dallas Mavericks, but also his thoughts on how we should reduce our Digital Footprints and what he’s doing about it.
I first encountered Mark 17 years ago, before the Broadcast IPO, when we were working together on the first live streaming of a TV show: the People’s Court with Judge Ed Koch.
Since then we’ve kept in touch through the years. I like to think I paid a small part in him making his first billion but I’m basically just kidding around when I say that.
I’m always amazed at the “outrage porn” he tends to get from every corner and we discuss that a bit.
If he had not sold Broadcast.com I always wonder if it would’ve gotten bigger than Google’s YouTube.
