David Gelernter's Revolution Populi is trying to take on Facebook - BusinessInsider

David Gelernter's Revolution Populi is trying to take on Facebook - BusinessInsider | The Marteq Alert |
Gelernter thinks there's a better way: he envisions a social media that's collectively owned by its users, where terms of use are determined democratically and privacy is guaranteed by blockchain-based encryption.

Gelernter has teamed up with Rob Rosenthal, a 19-year veteran of Goldman Sachs, to launch the new social media, dubbed "Revolution Populi." 

It may seem far-fetched, but they're counting on the general public becoming so fed up with Facebook — but still craving a social media outlet — that Revolution Populi becomes a global movement. A Facebook spokesperson did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
