Meeting Nick Bilton at his 'American Kingpin' book launch
How great meeting Nick Bilton at his Vanity Fair book launch party Tuesday night. (I sheepishly approached, and when I said my name for him to sign, he said, "You're Dave Cullen?!" Turns out he is a big fan of Columbine. That made my day, and gives me hope that I'm on the right track.)
I got home, took a peek at chapter 1 before going to bed, and couldn't stop reading.
I've been devouring it ever since. It's called: American Kingpin: The Epic Hunt for the Criminal Mastermind Behind the Silk Road.
Nick turned out to be a really nice guy, too. And so was his editor, Niki Papadopoulos. I can see them as a great fit.
American Kingpin is in stores now. Grab a copy. Or more info at Nick's site.
I've been whipping through this. Quite the page-turner.
I did Nick's podcast, after the awful Las Vegas shooting.
