Exclusive Interview with Jonathan Taplin, CEO of Intertainer

Jonathan Taplin isn’t one to shy away from risk. The CEO of interactive video firm Intertainer has spent the last few years trying to convince cable companies and other multichannel video providers to take a leap from the passive tradition of TV viewing into the uncertain new world of interactive programming. The idea was to use the existing IP network—along with the growing number of broadband connections—to pump robust bit streams into consumers’ homes, offering video-on-demand (VOD) and other content. Taplin took a few minutes to tell BizReport about this new service and why he thinks VOD over the Web will eventually take off. >>

Exclusive Interview with Jim Daly, founding editor of Business 2.0

Many of us rode the wave of Internet mania up—and then right back down. But few have occupied the enviable catbird seat of Jim Daly, the founding editor of Business 2.0, which is credited with fundamentally changing the way the media covers businesses as they were thrust (some unwillingly) into the uncertain abyss of cyberspace. Earlier this year, mass media goliath AOL Time Warner purchased Business 2.0 and kept only three Business 2.0 staffers, choosing instead to fold the staff of its eCompany Now magazine to the new Business 2.0. >>

Exclusive Interview with Andy Bourland, founder of ClickZ

Andy Bourland knows firsthand what it's like to see good times and bad. As the co-founder of ClickZ, one of the earliest pure-play content sites that helped legitimize Internet advertising, he lived through the halcyon days before selling his company to INT Media Group in May. Since then, Bourland has been trying to relax (at least for the summer) at his home in New England. But perhaps more than most, Bourland has a unique perspective on Internet advertising (ClickZ, after all, not only depends on advertising to pay its bills but also covers the ad and marketing industries). >>

Exclusive Interview with Steve Wallman, founder and CEO of FOLIOfn

Once upon a time in the late nineties, people trusted their brokers to keep them swimming in the black. After all, the stock market moved in one direction (up), and analysts' optimistic predictions kept finding validation in ever higher stock prices. But since the stock market began to decline in the Spring of 2000, people aren't quite as trusting of the so-called soothsayers and brokers whose calls now appear more the result of momentum than any broad insight of the markets. As investors sit on the sidelines contemplating the future, Steve Wallman, founder and CEO of FOLIOfn (www.foliofn.com), says he has a solution that emphasizes personal empowerment and minimizes the role of high-fee mutual funds and commission-thirsty brokers. >>

Exclusive Interview with Lou Dobbs, anchor & managing editor of CNN’s Moneyline

The return of Lou Dobbs to CNN’s “Moneyline” was more than just a homecoming. To CNN, which has watched Moneyline’s ratings plummet in Dobbs’ absence, it has been nothing short of a renaissance in progress. The publicity machine started cranking almost as soon as he signed on the dotted line and, since then, has focused on winning back viewers who began straying after Dobbs left two years ago to run Internet startup Space.com. >>

Exclusive Interview with Mark Jensen, CFO, Redleaf

In this uncertain Internet economy, some people might say that leaving an established consulting firm to become a venture capitalist is, well… crazy. Mark Jensen disagrees. The former managing partner of Arthur Andersen's Silicon Valley office has joined tech venture-capital firm Redleaf as its chief financial officer, and he isn't looking back. In fact, Jensen says more investment opportunities exist today than during the height of the dot-com craze. He took time out of his first few weeks on the job to give BizReport his take on why technology is always a good place to invest-even if there's never a safe haven. >>

Exclusive Interview with Jason Calacanis - Silicon Alley Reporter

He is known under many names - a human search engine, one of the most influential persons in the dotcom univers, indifferent as well as serious, even dangerous - bottom line is whether you love or hate him, you are bound to bump into Jason McCabe Calacanis if you are looking for the alley companies and venture capital. The 30-year-old editor, CEO, and founder of the New Yorker magazine Silicon Alley Reporter took a few minutes of his hectic 18 hours workday to give BizReport his take on the post-dotcom-crash situation and his guru-like status. >>

Exclusive Interview with Mike Knowlton, CEO of Nascent State

In mid-1999, Internet consulting firms were proliferating like weeds in a well-watered garden. New firms were each hiring hundreds of young, Web-savvy experts to help clamoring clients everywhere develop Web strategies. Companies spent millions on Web consulting. What a difference a year makes: Now, the same big Web consultancies have laid off thousands of workers. The deflation of the dot-com bubble continues. What was everybody thinking? Mike Knowlton isn't sure. As CEO of Nascent State, a small Web consultancy in New York City, he resisted the urge to join the hypergrowth bandwagon. >>

At the recent Plug-In Digital Music Conference in Barcelona, Spain, the theme was digital music distribution and how to make profits in the age of music piracy. The music industry is currently trying to establish suitable alternatives to the illegal, free-for-all of Napster. One company attempting to do just that is Italian-based Vitaminic. >>

Exclusive Interview with Alan Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Internet.com

Through the ups and downs of the Internet revolution, Alan Meckler has been quietly amassing a content empire that has become Internet.com, a network of 164 Web sites, over 300 e-mail newsletters, over 400 online discussion forums and more than 100 moderated e-mail discussion lists. Internet.com is among the most financially stable content players, boasting positive operational cashflow and $60 million in cash, which it has been using to buy up other content properties at bargain-basement, bubble-bursted prices. >>

Exclusive Interview with Matt Goyer, founder of Fairtunes.com

The emergence of Napster--and the ensuing lawsuits brought by the major record labels-has highlighted perhaps one of the most vexing issues facing the music industry as it grapples with a digital future: How to get paid. >>

Exclusive Interview with Sunny Singh, CEO of Edifecs

As consumer Internet companies continue to endure an excruciating shakeout, pundits are once again focused on B2B markets as the potential savior of e-commerce. Not so fast, says Edifecs, a Bellevue, Wash.-based company that helps businesses get their B2B Internet operations off the ground. >>

Exclusive Interview with Jodie Bernstein, FTC

Despite the Internet's benefits, the medium has also become a haven for con artists and new forms of consumer fraud. One agency charged with fighting fraud is the Federal Trade Commission, which has become a clearinghouse of sorts to find and root out Internet scams. All of this traces back to Jodie Bernstein, the 74-year-old director of the Consumer Protection Bureau. >>
