Peter Gabriel: Digital Entrepreneur

Peter Gabriel has always been an innovator (remember those Genesis costumes?), but his digital-media ventures are as ambitious as anything he has done onstage. Four more in addition to the Hub:

THE FILTER This site uses artificial intelligence to select music and movies tailored to a visitor’s tastes.


WE7 A music-streaming site that embeds advertisements at the beginning of songs, allowing users to download tracks at no cost.

THEMEMORY A social network to honor the dead where loved ones share memorial wikis.

GABBLE Still under wraps, this is described by Gabriel as “a new visual language for the Web.” Stay tuned.
