Peeple’s rise and immediate fall – I found myself generally agreeing with the GeekNights guys on this (both listening to the episode and when Peeple was in the news cycle). When most people seemed to be outraged that anyone would even consider “reviewing” people, I kept thinking about the missing stair (tw: sexual assault, rape). Wouldn’t it be great to have a tool that could flag abusers & rapists, or (on the other hand) let you know who has great tips for restaurants or interesting thoughts on the philosophies of Breaking Bad and Battlestar Galactica? Sites like this are probably inevitable; we need to make sure the ones that succeed have built-in guards against harassment and bullying while preserving their usefulness.
(Not sure what it says about me that I fully support selfies but strongly dislike the Selfie Stick)
