Ken Hertz is a lawyer who represents top talent in New York City. Many stars are signed to his firm which he represents. In this interview Ken talks about how the music industry has changed over the last 3-5 years, both the positive sides and the negative sides. He sees artists being more empowered and creating what he calls thier own 360 businesses.

So last weekend or so I was in Berlin to Speak at a workshop, and I did an interview with gruenderszene as well as some other journalists. In any case gruenderszene posted the video interviews as well as a nice writeup. In the interviews I talk about twitter, the difference between entrepreneurs in Europe, United States, and Israel. I also talked briefly about my thoughts about how there should be a fund by technology VCs and investors that be given to artists to try and understand the meaning of what we are building. Of course this is already happening, becuase artists will always do this, but it helps stimulus when they can actually live off of these crazy pieces they do. It's an idea that Paulo Cohello says will come but in years time at Le Web. Well here are the videos. They are posted on gruenderszene.de. The translated post is here.

GabeMac, how much he learned from his Vodcast business errors?
"Gabemac is one of the first passionate vodcasters I know. He started in 2003 and has been an video enterpreneur since 9 years. He build huge audiences with his XoloTV, started to build a software platform for videocasting, that failed, he went to spain and did a daily show on www.mobuzz.tv which drew millions. Now he is back in amsterdam, does Viral Video Creative Consultanting, creates video's (for thenextweb amoung others) and plans his next show & exciting venture. What did he learn from his mistakes since he said he made many. It was a little hard because he continiouly talkes about his strength (passion, creativaty etc) rather then his lessons learns but in the end they show up. Who is Gabriel"

About a month ago I had the pleasure to interview Steve Wozniak for mobuzztv. It was for me (an Apple Fanboy) a DREAM COME TRUE! Steve also known as iWoz or Woz is the man responsible for building the first Apple computers. Most people talk about Steve Jobs, but Jobs was the man with the marketing ideas and style. It was Woz that actually designed and built the first Apple and Macintosh computers. Many say Jobs is the Father of Apple and Woz is the Mother of Apple. It was a great way to start my run at mobuzz, to interview a man who has shaped my life and experience with technology in such a big way. I know it sounds like I am ass kissing here, but it really was a honor and something I WILL NEVER FORGET! He was really nice, and someone to follow with his charity work and educational passions. So have a look at the interview and let me know what you think of it. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FBpvIcbG6Y[/youtube]
