Just a bit ago CNBC released a list of porns most powerful players of 2013 I was reading throught the list which includes:
Fabian Thylmann, Larry Flynt, Derek Hay, Ron Cadwell (Owns CCBill), Steve Hirsch, Mark Randazza, Frank Koretsky, Ron Braverman
Mike South …(wait what?), and Peter Ackworth
was I surprised to see my name in that list….I was floored. Here’s what they said:
South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders and his spy network is vast. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. South was the first to identify patient zero in last summer’s syphilis outbreak that shut down production. He also led the charge to shut down Porn Wikileaks, which published the real names and addresses of industry stars. These days, he has Manwin in his sights, regularly taking shots at the company. Like Manwin’s Thylmann, there are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him.
It IS nice to have some recognition for my efforts…Thank You CNBC!
