Dan Price, goes viral almost every day. The now former CEO of Seattle’s Gravity Payments first flooded the news and social media years ago after taking a pay cut to give his employees a pay bump. And he’s maintained a good image online for years, by saying the right things for the right audiences.

Price resigned last week amidst abuse allegations that were largely fueled by his social media persona.

New York Times technology correspondent Karen Weise has been writing about Dan Price for years. She’s here to tell us about her latest report.
