Snapchat Founder, “SnapChat is About Transparency, Not Privacy” (video)

A few months ago I shared this gem from Mark Zuckerberg talking about why Facebook wasn’t a social network. Now, I’m sharing a video from the founder of the company he tried to rip off, Snapchat. In it, Liz Gannes of AllThingsD does a spontaneous interview with Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in which Spiegel talks about why Snapchat is about transparency, and not privacy.

As a child I would pore through a book of failures and mistakes that led to popular inventions: Coke (the soda kind), Penicillin, Silly Putty. That children’s book was one of the most important books I ever read, because I realized that innovation isn’t something that can be taught or predicted- True innovation just happens. Youtube was founded as a place to share videos with friends and family because sending larger videos via email was impossible. Now it’s used to share ideas with complete strangers. I can’t figure out how to sum it up in a sentence. Maybe you can help. What do you make of this?
