Ethan Zuckerman

D&S advisor Ethan Zuckerman was quoted in this Atlantic piece discussing anonymous secrets on apps, such as Secret and Whisper.

“Most of the new systems out there aren’t working hard enough on the crypto to actually promise anonymity—what they’re promising is the idea of anonymity, the bending of the social norms enough to encourage a different type of speech.” [said Zuckerman]
