A dating app for literal monsters exposes the bias in our swipes

TwitterFacebook

Sure, online dating is a hellscape. But in this new online dating game, that’s a good thing.

Developer Ben Berman and designer Miguel Perez created a game that seeks to expose the inherent bias that fuels dating app matching algorithms. The pair are winners of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards, which enabled the work.

In a nutshell, a VPN is a service that creates a private, secure internet connection between your computer and a server, which reroutes (and thus conceals) your online activities. It works sort of like “an anonymous middleman that does your browsing for you,” as Mashable’s Monica Chin put it last year.

TwitterFacebook

Never get between bargain hunters and their discounted designer beachwear. 

Target shoppers across the country found that out the hard way Saturday, when many rolled up to their favorite big box store only to find a giant line. That’s right, a line to enter a Target. And what, exactly, was the reason for this shopping fervor?
