Being guided by girls

GirlGuides-headerA couple of weeks back I was asked to write a column for a local tech site aimed at ladies called GirlGuides. My brief was to write something with a gender angle relating to tech. I opted to talk about the different relationships women and men tend to have with their gadgets. At the risk of getting digitally lynched, I argued that men tend to fixate on specifications, while women (far more sensibly) tend to be most interested in what a particular device can actually do for them.

Rando: one picture, one person

It’s Rando‘s contrarian premise that first led me to download it for iOS in June (it’s since added versions for Android and Windows Phone). You take a picture (cropped to a circle) and it gets sent to another, random Rando user. In exchange for each picture you send you receive one, also from a random user. That’s it.
