Shevinsky spoke to me at length about privacy and the importance of usability to mass adoption of privacy-oriented tools.

Raine Dalton, creative strategy director for Glimpse, crafted a targeted outreach program specifically for Greek life organizations.

When Dickinson apologized, Shevinsky came back to Glimpse–but this time as his boss.“The women in tech mission was part of the deal that Pax and I made when I came back to Glimpse.

As Founder and CEO of startup Make Out Labs, her previous projects included a Jewish dating site and a hack for Ok Cupid that created a spam filter for users’ inboxes.

Shevinsky adds that “they like that Glimpse is encrypted but they aren’t choosing it for that feature.”The stereotype of teens and millennials is that they are chronic over-sharers whose sense of privacy has been warped–if not eradicated–by the proliferation of social media. She believes, like danah boyd, who has written on the topic for , that millennials are actively creating a new sense of privacy.“Young people are very savvy in creating new ways to connect in an ecosystem that often restricts their abilities to relate in more normal ways,” says Shevinsky.

“American teens and millennials are connecting more online because young people have fewer places and ways to connect with each other in the public sphere.”However, in Shevinsky’s view, the act of connecting online does not mean that teens completely lack a filter.“Teens and millennials seek privacy from their parents, their schools, future employers, and from the social drama that is a natural side effect of public sharing,” she says.

Shevinsky stresses that our contemporary obsession with “big data” was not how the Internet was originally conceived.
