M.C. Hammer Wants You To Upload Dance Videos

MC Hammer (Stanley Burrell), 45, is co-founder and chief strategy officer of Menlo Park, Calif.-based DanceJam.com, a web site that wants to become the Internet's source for uploading, sharing and watching dance videos. DanceJam hopes to make money by selling Internet advertising, which is about a $28 billion market.
