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. >>

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 (, says he has a solution that emphasizes personal empowerment and minimizes the role of high-fee mutual funds and commission-thirsty brokers. >>
