Ryan Holiday is the bestselling author of Trust Me, I’m LyingThe Obstacle Is the Way; Ego Is the Enemy; and other books about marketing, culture, and the human condition. His newest book, Conspiracy, documents how a short blogpost on Valleywag, the Silicon Valley-vertical of Gawker Media, outed PayPal founder and billionaire investor Peter Thiel as gay. Thiel’s sexuality had been known to close friends and family, but he didn’t consider himself a public figure, and believed the information was private. This post would be the casus belli for a meticulously plotted conspiracy that would end nearly a decade later with a $140 million dollar judgment against Gawker, its bankruptcy, and wit Denton, Gawker’s CEO and founder, out of a job.
