CEO, Beats Music.
Has dedicated much of his career to fixing the artists’ end of the music industry spectrum.
Thinks humans know better than robots what should come next.
“What people need is a mainstream, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand experience—built not only on suggestion but intuition.”
Believes the Internet isn’t about technology, it’s about people.
Introduced the Beastie Boys to the Internet – then wound up building their first website.
“Our kids are going to watch exactly what they want to – not what’s marketed to them.”
Leads by telling a story to his team about what they need to do to be successful.
Believes online communities have the capability of inspiring people much more than one-directional mass media.
