After running for lieutenant governor and serving as a special adviser to the Federal Trade Commission, the man who coined the term "net neutrality" has a new gig. Tim Wu, a professor at Columbia Law School, will take a sabbatical to join the New York attorney general's office as senior lawyer and special adviser to Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Wu will work on matters of consumer protection and fair competition when it comes to technology. More specifically, issues facing companies that do business over the internet. "If I have a life mission, it is to fight bullies," Wu said in an interview. During his tenure, Schneiderman has dealt with issues concerning internet-based companies like Airbnb and Lyft in addition to advocating for stronger anti-theft features on smartphones.
