between Bloomberg’s Tom Keene and computer scientist Ken Steiglitz, who has just written a book on auction theory and eBay, which he calls a “a beautifully tuned mechanism.” Steiglitz offers a couple of fun revelations about his own eBay transactions, including how he made a small fortune selling an old Princeton yearbook and the fact that he was late to a dinner in honor of eBay CEO Meg Whitman because he was busy attempting a last-minute auction coup.
