Play • 37 min

At 16 years old, Avi Schiffmann built the very first and most popular website for COVID-19 with 30 million daily visitors at its peak. Listen along to his incredible backstory and what's coming next.

Avi created when the first signs of COVID-19 hit - little did he know it would quickly become one of the most popular COVID-19 tracking sites with 30 million+ daily visitors at its peak, and help inform the public and epidemiologists in monitoring and curbing the spread of the pandemic.

Since then, Avi has been recognized by Webby Awards as the 2020 Person of the Year presented by Dr. Fauci, created numerous other websites on causes ranging from protests to voting information, and recently has been accepted into Harvard University!

His message? “You can learn anything online."

Listen along to this Delta X podcast episode to hear about his journey and vision for the future (spoiler alert: includes cybernetics, vertical farming, reading/writing to the mind, and more!)
