Dear Internet,

I ask of you, for one thing.

A LinkedIn competitor, and especially that it not suck as much as LinkedIn sucks. That it not suck at all.

That it could be well designed, with [gasp!] a responsive UI.

Line-up for this *extra* Warm Up to be announced…

Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.

When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.

It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
