Tim Wu, the writer and law professor best known for coining the term net neutrality, has joined the office of the New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
According to a report from The New York Times, Wu will serve as a senior lawyer and special adviser to Schneiderman starting this week, focusing on issues surrounding technology, competition and the protection of consumer rights.
“If I have a life mission, it is to fight bullies,” Wu told the Times. “I like standing up for the little guy, and I think that’s what the state A.G.’s office does.”
