Very fascinating discussion with Ari Emmanuel at the All Things D conference.
At this week’s All Things D conference — D10, which marked a decade of these retreats — Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher were gracious enough to invite Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel on stage to talk about the changing entertainment market as it relates to technology. Ari is an incredibly powerful player in film, TV, and increasingly even web content — he’s the kind of guy who can say things like “you’ll never work in this town again” and actually make it happen.
If you watched the show Entourage, Ari Gold was based on this guy Ari Emmanuel.
He’s a fascinating character in the media business and it’s a must watch.
