Twitter personality, as Chuck calls him, Pax Dickinson attracted the ire of some rabble rousers earlier this week. Being preternaturally devoid of the section of the brain that allows normal humans to process humor, a digital mob quickly formed and marched on Pax’s employer. And like that, Pax was asked to resign and Business Insider was down one CTO. Score another victory against thoughtcrime for the Gawker hivemind.
But that’s not why we’re here. No, we’re here because Pax has already started a new social media company based on privacy.
You read that correctly.
Glimpse is a fully encrypted, fully secure way to briefly share something with friends. After they get their glimpse, the object vanishes into the ether. No permanent record, no digital trail to be followed. It could also revolutionize the way girls share pictures of their boobs.
So head over, make your donation, and help a startup get going. Pax is a good dude. Also, boobs.
