Today there is a huge New York Times, four-photo, above-the-fold feature on Gary Vaynerchuk, host of the popular and influential wine video blog Wine Library TV. The paper reports that Gary has a million dollar, 10-book contract with HarperStudio.

It is fascinating to see that Gary has parlayed his video blog and relentless social networking into a successful personality-driven business, which is not dependent on advertising.

Gary was in our office last year for a little champagne tasting — he barely escaped an exploding cork — very entertaining video!
