Media Appearances

Selected Media Appearances

Media response to my work as a writer, producer and entrepreneur.

William Sen about his appearances in the media: “After my book Hackerland, I experiencined a huge media response. At first, it helped me to promote my book. Years later, I would still get many requests. I started to decline media requests in 2001. In 2006 I began to promote my book NO COPY, and was again in the spotlight.”

My company took advantage of my popularity. They used my name on many occasions to their advantage, and I supported them where I could.
