The Social Media Shaming of Pax Dickinson

The wonderful Cathy Young, who wrote the terrific article telling Paul Nungesser’s story about his Columbia University witch hunt, has written a Reason article about yours truly:

But before Hunt, before Sacco, before the ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich over his opposition to same-sex marriage, there was another drama of career-killing Internet outrage: the undoing of Business Insider Chief Technology Officer Pax Dickinson. It is a story that raises troubling questions about speech and consequences.

Go there and read the whole thing. I consider this the current definitive retelling of my experience.

Cathy interviewed me way back in January, so a few minor unimportant details are out of date. The blacklisting prevented me from getting any work outside of odd gigs for friends here and there, but I’m working on an exciting secret project right now that I hope to be able to discuss publicly soon. Stay tuned, this isn’t the end of the story.
