Secret, Whisper, Rumr, FireChat, and (local MN venture) StartupsAnonymous.com are all about anonymity in an age where we wonder if anything is really private anymore (i.e. Facebook, Google retargeting, Hotmail email snooping, etc).
Are "anonymous" apps/sites just a fad, or is it a real trend to bring the internet back to its roots (anyone still on usenet)?
We'll talk a bit about why we started StartupsAnonymous and our experiences running the site.
Then we'll open it up to discussion:
What does anonymous, pseudonymous, etc. really mean for the future of the web?
Is anonymity a force for good or for evil (or for awesome)?
