LEARNING FROM LECHERY: THE ETHICS OF THE ADULT ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY This week?s discussion question: What can we learn from Danni Nashe about running a successful web site? Three areas to consider for this discussion?the Internet technology she uses to run her web site, her unique approach to viral marketing and what aspects of her web site make it a successful business model? Lastly what does her success say about us morally? *DANNI NOTES: Porn Star and Internet Entrepreneur Danni Nashe, aka Danni?s Hard Drive (www.danni.com), is the Guiness World Record Holder for Most Downloaded Woman. Photos of Danni were downloaded 841,271,545 times between February 1996 and June 2000. Many leading Internet marketing executives consider Danni a successful Entrepreneur. They actually study adult entertainment sites like Danni?s Hard Drive to learn successful Internet marketing techniques. We consider her the queen of viral marketing!. To learn more about her business practices, check out her Real Player stream here (it?s an interview not a sex show): http://www.danni.com/cgi-bin/ram_director.cgi/video/promos /vpvnr.rm Also look at the full study here: http://www.mostdownloadedwoman.com/ Danni.com Fun Facts: *On a daily basis, Danni.com uses more bandwidth than all of Central America. *If each image of Danni that's been downloaded were printed on a separate piece of Xerox paper the stack would be over 278,285 feet tall - that's 52.7 miles, or 47 miles into space. *If each downloaded image were printed on standard letter size paper and laid end-to-end they'd stretch 144,940 miles - or three and a half times around the world. *The weight of all of the Danni images downloaded if printed on standard letter-size paper would be 8,870,348 lbs or 3,959 tons. *If one person were to download all 10.15 terabytes of Danni images that have been downloaded, using a 28Kbs modem it would take over 12 years. *On average, since February 1996, 6 images of Danni have been downloaded every second. *On average over 100,000 people download images of Danni every day. *You could download a different image of Danni every day for over 11 years and never download the same image twice. We add new images so fast that at current rates we'd have added enough images to last another 31 years by the time you'd looked at what's on the site today. *To store all of the images of Danni downloaded you'd need over 100,000 Zip disks at a cost of approximately $1.8 million dollars. 2. POSTINGS: WHAT YOU FOLKS HAVE SAID! *"I will not subscribe to a site that takes over TWO MINUTES to load on a dial-up connection (and well over a minute before I saw the words 'Media Addict'. Thanks anyway, but I'd rather iron shirts for a hobby. " Adrian Ord mailto:ardian.ord@xxxxxxxxx Adrian: Thanks to Adrian?s Insightful wisdom and continued beta testing by John Kirsch. John killed the eye opening flash title animation so the web site should load up much faster. Please check the new web site now Adrian and please tell us what hardware you are using to visit us. Cheers, mediaADDICT (mA). *"< home > on the flash menu of the main frame gives 404" Andrea Varalli" mailto:varalli@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Andrea: The home key is fixed Andrea. Thanks.

Compare your fast, smooth and useful site to the sluggish, useless mass called olympics.com. You're the king!" Mind Wanderer mailto:wanderings@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Hey Mind Wanderer: When can we expect to see more writings from you? How is Los Angeles? --mA III. NEWS FROM AROUND THE NET *ShockWave.com announces a new animated series from Tim Burton, the genius behind Beetlejuice, Batman, and The Nightmare Before Christmas; Burton has crafted a rich world of Good versus Evil featuring a well-intentioned but ill-equipped super hero named Stainboy. The eerie debut episode pits Stainboy against another deviant, sick, no-good-to-society freak of nature: a girl who just stares. Can Stainboy survive a stare down to the death? Requires the Shockwave Plugin http://shockwave1.m0.net/m/s.asp?H2222225057X869343. *QuickTime News: If you have the QuickTime 4 player, check out the new movie preview for "Get Carter".
