Introducing Wesearchr, An Information Marketplace

Today on Twitter I announced that my new project is a company called Wesearchr. Wesearchr is an information marketplace that will launch this spring, and my partner and CEO is the infamous Charles C. Johnson of GotNews, the once-and-future holder of the title “Most Hated Man on The Internet.” logo

Please follow @wesearchr on Twitter, like our Facebook page, and join our mailing list for updates. In a few weeks we’ll announce more details about what we’re building, and once we do I know it’s going to have people talking.

2016 is going to be an interesting year. If you have a seat belt, you might want to fasten it for this ride.

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Cathy interviewed me way back in January, so a few minor unimportant details are out of date.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.
