Cuban knows what's wrong with newspapers

Mark Cuban apparently isn't content with blogging, running a basketball team, starting HDnet and launching movie studios. In a"What I've Learned" piece, he tells Esquire: "If I had more time? I'd get into places where people are so afraid right now that the economics dominate the common sense. I'd get into a business like newspapers-local newspapers. ... Contrary to popular belief, newspapers aren't dying. ... The problem with newspapers is that they're trying to grow like they're internet companies in 1999.

What they should do is step back and ask, 'What makes us special?"'

The internet scavenger hunt-for advertisers

Some people will do anything for a free iPod. They'll put up with endless surveys and even sell out their friends. TenHunt asked for something a little different: a scavenger hunt from sponsored site to sponsored site. "We see the value of a TenHunt player as incredibly powerful to an advertiser. Not only will players be visiting an advertiser's site, they will be scouring its contents to discover the answer contained on the site," said TenHunt founder Mike Taggart in a statement.
