Fred Beneson, the admissions manager at Y Combinator, interviewed Tim Wu onstage for an off-the-record chat about his motivation for writing the book and thoughts on the attention economy. After the interview, Tim signed copies of the book for the 300-person audience.

Thanks to Automattic, Bloomberg Beta, Jenny 8. Lee, Elizabeth Stark, Tim Hwang, Fred Beneson, and Tim Wu for the excellent and thought-provoking evening.
