That interview link was working yesterday - I listened to almost all of it (it was 2 hours long) - so hopefully it will be back up.
I thought it was pretty interesting overall, though I'm not sure whether I believe him or not. The interviewer made a point of saying he was only
about 20% convinced - he even said so at the beginning of the interview to the man who claims to be Kaufmann.
"Kaufmann" uses software to alter his voice throughout.
All in all, it's a good conversation. The first half they go through the known history of Kaufmann and then they move onto what he's been doing
since. Basically, for a long time he was laying low, but as time passed and the internet came about, he started to be interested in the new media. He
formed the Kaufmann Lives website and began creating online characters to interact with guests on his site.
At one point, he mentioned how the advent of VHS and cheap camcorders had excited him as he envisioned young kids and people making skits and shows
passing them around to one another. It never developed at the time, but now sites like youtube have come about and it's all part of the reason why
he's reemerged and become active again. Not that he's seeking to come out and say he's alive in some big announcement. He's just doing his thing
and letting people think what they will.
Anyway, if the link starts working again, it's worth a listen...
