At Alley, we pride ourselves on being creative and having fun outside of the projects we work on for our clients.
Earlier this month Alley Interactive co-hosted a book party for Columbia professor Tim Wu’s new book The Attention Merchants in San Francisco. Automattic held the event at their SOMA headquarters and our co-hosts included Bloomberg Beta, Jenny 8. Lee, Elizabeth Stark, and Tim Hwang.
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.
