After months of walking his dog past the local library in his sleepy San Francisco neighborhood, our next guest, Nick Bilton, discovered that same library was being used as a hub for Silk Road, the Internet’s top website for illegal drugs and guns. This sparked his latest book: American Kingpin, which traces the manhunt for Silk Road’s founder.

Nick Bilton is a Special Correspondent at Vanity Fair who’s unearthed the dark underbelly and inner workings of the technology sector throughout his journalism career.

He joins Webby Podcast host David-Michel Davies to discuss American Kingpin, the future of automation, and lots more.

It’s the people who, often, want to be famous and lauded as the next Steve Jobs that are the ones that you should be cautious of.”
— Nick Bilton Special Correspondent, Vanity Fair
