AlexisOhanianBOOKAs startup czar Alexis Ohanian learned when he helped co-found the immensely popular reddit.com, the Internet is the most powerful and democratic tool in human history for disseminating information. And when that power is harnessed to create new communities, technologies, businesses, or charities, the results can be absolutely stunning. Ohanian, the personification of the dorm-room tech entrepreneur and author of Without Their Permission, shares ideas, tips, and even his own doodles about harnessing the power of the Web for good—and inspiring other aspiring entrepreneurs to follow in his footsteps. Ohanian will be joined in conversation by Todd Bishop, co-founder of GeekWire, an independent technology news site and online community based in Seattle.

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Arts & Culture series, with Elliott Bay Book Company. Sponsored by City Arts.
