Nobody is that Cool, Facebook

Over the last 10 years, the internet as a whole has drastically changed the way human beings communicate. Twitter allows us to rapidly share and re-share tidbits of information, Yelp can tell us the exact address and relative quality of the service at a given business, and Reddit aggregates all the funniest, most informative, and […]

Finding Tinderella

Tinder is full of women. Tinder is an app that presents its users with a virtual stack of photos of potential suitors and bachelorettes.
