The Copy And Paste Guide To A Job With Mark Cuban (Or Understanding The New New Movie Business)

July 24, 2006

[So Mark Cuban is offering a job to the person who can figure out how to get people into the movie theater without massive amounts of marketing. As a public service I decided to print the answer here. Please feel free to tweak this idea and send it to Mark.

The answer is simple.
