Twitter Co-Founders Hint At New Project

Posted Aug 23, 2011

Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams have announced a new project called Lift. Lift is expected to be a new application that will unlock the human potential, whatever that means. This project will be under the company Obvious Corporation, which was founded by Williams several years ago.

Obvious was brought back to life by Biz Stone and former Twitter VP of Product Jason Goldman. ?Our approach is threefold: Build, partner, and invest,? Stone said on the company blog. ?We?ve started working on some ideas ourselves, we?re researching how best to create an investment vehicle, and today we?re thrilled to announce our first official partnership.?

Stone wrote that Lift has partnered with Tony Stubblebine and Jon Crosby. Stubblebine and Crosby will be driving the project while Obvious will provide resources to get it off the ground and running. The product is still in private alpha mode.
