Reality Code Alliance Foundational member Reggie Watts, now he has his own app. It has one of the most amazing names: WattsApp by Reggie Watts.
Watts was a guest on CNET’s I’m So Obsessed podcast. He explained that one of the motivations behind releasing an app was to protect the data privacy of his fans from companies like Google , Facebook and TikTok.
“I wanted to have a place that people who enjoy what I do can go to and they’re not being tracked and there’s no advertising,” Watts said. “I just wanted it to be like a cool space for people to go to. It’s like my own multimedia channel. I’m certainly not the first to do this. But my thing is to offer as much transparency and clarity when it comes to being an artist. An artist’s responsibility is to be in control over the tools they use and the experiences that they provide.”
The content on WattsApp by Reggie Watts is as varied as Watts. One of the first times I used it, I watched a sit down video interview with musician Jack White filmed indoors entirely by drones . There are also live performances by Watts and a shop where he sells off his old tech. Watts is a passionate early adopter when it comes to new gadgets and products.
