    I was there. It wasn’t really an “in=depth” conversation. Nas got asked a bunch of softball questions. Nothing deep at all. Dyson said some kind of cool stuff at the end about people being encouraged to follow their dreams (or something like that). Someone in the audience reminded Nas that he was doing investments in tech start-ups. Nas said something about working with tech start-ups to teach kids computer programming (should be teaching them how to create tech companies, though). Nothing really insightful about Illmatic was discussed. It was a disappointment to me, overall.
