Maverick Cuban

Mark Cuban is a digital maverick having founded broadcast.com and selling it off to Yahoo! Coincidentally, he is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. Mark was recently named one of the best and brightest of 2006 by Esquire magazine. Here are some Mark’s remarks from that article…

When you’ve got 10,000 people trying to do the same thing, why would you want to be number 10,001?

When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. And today’s hammer is the Internet, or digital.

I don’t care how Internet savvy you are or whether you’re in ninth grade or college, you’re not going to read twenty-five pages of text online.

With the Internet, life’s become an open-book test. You don’t need to know anything. There used to be value for memory. Now you can just Google it.

If you’re looking where everybody else is looking, you’re looking in the wrong spot.
