Mark Wants You to Watch CuTube

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 18th, 2006

This isn’t the first time I’ve grabbed Mark Cuban in the hall of a hotel to interview him, and it won’t be the last! And I must say, Cuban is as gracious a webebrity as GETV has ever met. Not only did he shake the hand of every member of the Consumer Electronics Association who wanted to touch a piece of history (yes, goddamit — if you sell your start-up for $5 billion in 1991, and then you buy the Dallas Mavericks and then you marry a hottie named Tiffany, you’re a piece of American history), he explained his website several times over to several inquiring minds. When we finally wrestled Cuban away from his fans to our adoring camera, we had to bug him about his topic du jour = YouTube’s illegal conent and how it’s all going down in a burning ball of lawsuits . Cuban’s been busy — he’s got 12 films coming out of his production studio, the first due out Dec. 1 called The Architect featuring Isabella Rosellini. But our favorite part of the interview is where he tells us what he does in front of the television AFTER he checks his email at night. You’ll have to watch to see what that is.

    That was cool to see Mark on video. I just know about him from his blog, and
    while he’s a fun read, he comes across much more graciously on video.

    I guess he puts lie to the notion that geeks have to be hollow chested Bill Gates lookalikes.

    Yea, interesting to see the composed and mild-mannered side of Cuban, in contrast to his vicious blog entries and courtside antics.

    Interested to see how HDNetFilms pans out.

    […] PodTech has lots of famous geeks on today. Here Geek Entertainment TV has an interview with Mark Cuban. I was there yesterday too, and Mark sure holds no punches. Quotamatic! Heheh, I didn’t know Irina was a pervert. You’ll have to listen to the interview to get the context of THAT. […]
