ADVISORY/iHollywood Forum Calendar Alert for Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Business/Entertainment Editors & High-Tech Writers

ADVISORY...for Wednesday (Jan. 17)

--(ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)

WHAT: "iHollywood Forum: How Adult Entertainment Profits from the
 Internet and Implications for Mainstream Digital
 Entertainment." Whatever one's attitude toward adult
 entertainment, one fact is undeniable: it's the only segment
 of the entertainment industry that consistently makes money on
 the Internet. For 20 years, adult entertainment companies have
 been "first adopters" for most major entertainment technology
 advances -- from cable to video to DVDs to the Internet. Does
 adult entertainment know something about content, technology
 and marketing on the Internet that Hollywood doesn't -- beyond
 the obvious "sex sells"?

WHO: iHollywood Forum, www.iHollywoodForum.com, is a professional
 networking organization dedicated to providing ongoing
 seminars and business development opportunities for
 interactive Hollywood and new media professionals.

SPEAKERS:

 -- Gail Harris, CEO and president, Falcon Foto, distributors of
 adult-themed video and photographic content for magazines and
 Web sites

 -- Frederick S. Lane III, attorney and author of "Obscene
 Profits: The Entrepreneurs of Pornography in the Cyber Age"
 (Routledge 2000)

 -- Taylor Marsh, former editor-in-chief of Danni's Hard Drive, a
 popular adult site that brings in $6 million a year in
 revenue, now a featured columnist on LA Weekly's
 LALoveseat.com

 -- Mike Rick, Co-founder of Cyber-synergism, superstore for
 Online Adult Entertainment and KSEXRadio.com, an adult content
 Internet radio station

 -- David Schlesinger, vice president, Internet Marketing, Vivid
 Video

 -- Anthony Z. Tang, vice president, Flynt Digital (Flynt
 Publications), a leading expert on using technology to
