algorithms
I felt precisely the same way I did before I downloaded a bunch of apps that judge your face and rate your physical beauty.
dating
I'd never noticed before that I had been doing most of the heavy lifting when it came to dating. But when I tried to let men take the reins, they took it as rejection or disinterest.
sex
Pulled directly from my "Do Not Want" Files (The Prude Collection) comes Glance, an app that lets you watch yourself have sex during the act, from a variety of angles, while wearing Google Glass. Agghhhh!

digital footprint
I just play one on the Internet: the problem of the digital footprint.
