Roy Sekoff, Founding Editor of the Huffington Post and good friend of The Webbys, is no stranger to disruption—or comedy. He implemented HuffPost Live, the video arm of the publication that completely disintermediated online journalism. Now, he’s back disrupting the world of self-publishing in the digital era with his first book Lacks Self Control: Stories I Waited Until My Parents Died to Tell

We talk about this collection of whacky stories—from his time with Arianna Huffington to how he walked away with a tissue of Oprah Winfrey’s “tears.”
