David Icke’s Ickonic platform
David Icke’s media platform, ICKONIC, started in 2019, was billed as an uncensored alternative to the mainstream media. But one potential problem for him is that his website is currently, 2020, underpinned by the popular website development company called WIX. I wonder if David was aware that Wix was founded in Israel in 2006 by Israeli developers who included AVISHAI ABRAHAMI, who had earlier served in the Israeli Defense Forces’ elite computer intelligence unit. One of Wix’s investors was Insight Venture Partners, co-founded by 2 rich investors:-
1) JEFF HORING – financed the cybersecurity firm Darktrace in 2017. Darktrace was recognized as the world’s leading AI company for cyber security. Darktrace was founded in 2013 by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge and government cyber intelligence experts in the US and the UK. Darktrace Advisory Board members in 2020 included the ex-Director General of MI5 from 2007 to 2013: Lord Evans of Weardale, KCB. Evans spent 33 years with MI5, defending the UK against internal and domestic terrorism and cyber-threats. He was appointed to the Security Service’s Management Board as Director of International Counter Terrorism in 2001, ten days before the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. He was appointed to the House of Lords in 2014 at the personal recommendation of the Prime Minister and sits as a cross-bench peer. Lord Evans is also a non-executive Director of HSBC Holdings.
Jeff Horing was a key member of the technology investing team at E.M. Warburg, Pincus & Co. Earlier in his career he worked at Goldman, Sachs & Co.
2) JERRY MURDOCK – in 2009 he invested in Twitter. Murdock was a founder and director of the Aspen Technology Group. He is on the boards of the Santa Fe Institute and the Aspen Institute.
