McAfee security founder John McAfee has launched a surprise new website at the Defcon event in Las Vegas, which he claims will allow people to complain more easily to businesses and governments.
Brownlist is being touted as a way for people to focus their anger online in a way that is actually productive, rather than simply hurling abuse at public figures or companies on social networks. McAfee claims it could serve as a conduit for grassroots direct action.
"We are doing this because it tapes in to the strongest of human emotions, anger, and it does it in a way that turns it positive," McAfee said. For now just a prototype was on show, but nonetheless the entrepreneur welcomed early contributions. "If you are a small person, like the average American, and some company steps on you or a government, you speak out against something and you are audited the next day, come to our site," McAfee said.
