There’s a 3.18 N.Y. Times story by Jenna Wortham about a five-week-old app called Secret, basically an anonymous forum for any topic. “For me, it’s nothing more than what you would see etched on a bathroom wall,” venture capitalist Mark Suster tells Northam. There’s also that Paul Simon lyric about words “written on subway walls” being of some value. Anonymity brings out cruelty and contempt but also strains of truth. The 98% anonymous Hollywood Elsewhere comments testify to that. I’m presuming/expecting that more Hollywood-centric comments will eventually appear on this app.
