Ethan Kaplan thrives in the music industry as the Senior Director of Technology at Warner Bros. Records. According to him, “he loves computers and music (especially post-punk and punk). He has an MFA in conceptual art and cultural theory. He believes Jacques Derrida is the true father of the Internet.” He also apparently likes writing autobiographies in the third person. Yes, I have a great deal of respect for Ethan – because he’s doing what he loves. More importantly, he gets to work with one of his all-time favorite bands (R.E.M.). I wonder if Weird Al is hiring?
