  5. It was 6 years before twitter and the money, he open all his software to the comunity, could be a very rich man: In 2004, Marlinspike bought a derelict sailboat and, along with three friends, refurbished it and sailed around the Bahamas while making a documentary about their journey called Hold Fast. In 2010, Marlinspike was the chief technology officer and co-founder of Whisper Systems,[13] an enterprise mobile security startup company. In May 2010, Whisper Systems launched TextSecure and RedPhone. These were applications that provided end-to-end encrypted SMS messaging and voice calling, respectively. The company was acquired by the social-media firm Twitter for an undisclosed amount in late 2011.[14] The acquisition was done "primarily so that Mr. Marlinspike could help the then-startup improve its security".[12] During his time as head of cybersecurity at Twitter,[15] the firm made Whisper Systems' apps open source.[

    Yes, next year will be 30 years old. It was ahead of her time, a Harlé design: quoting Jack Sparrow: "The first one-design series boat created for the Mini Transat, the Archambault Coco designed by Philippe Harlé and Alain Mortain had a rounded bow. The 1987 Mini was won by a Coco with the late and charismatic Laurent Bourgnon at the helm. The latest production one-designs to have followed this trend are the Ofcet and the Pogo 3." https://www.petitsvoiliers.com/mini-650/ http://www.histoiredeshalfs.com/Histoire des Minis/Coco.htm
