A Dinner Conversation

After Mark Cuban made a billion or so selling his company to Yahoo! during the height of the Web 1.0 craze, he decided to buy a basketball team. Fortunately, he bought the Mavericks, a team whose name suits his style: brash, out there, and unconventional. Now he's back in the media business with HDNet. Cuban is a stitch onstage, a straight-talking no-punches-pulled Wildman whose irreverent one liners will have you snorting wine out your nose.

This conversation with Mark Cuban is moderated by John Heilemann, a special correspondent for Wired and a former staff writer for The New Yorker and The Economist.
