My new requirement is that if my kid wants to download a new app, she has to write a one page report on the founders, company story, and business model so that she understands how the app benefits from her use.

This is what happens when your mom works in tech.

The global online dating landscape in 2018 • GlobalWebIndex
<p>At 65% of the user base, men outnumber women almost 2 to 1 as the biggest online daters.

Most growth in the online dating market seems to be coming from location-based dating apps, like Happn and Badoo, which have crept up slowly from 7% monthly usage to 13% in the past three years. On the other hand, paid-for online dating services have flatlined, as illustrated in our latest infographic taking an in-depth look at the global online dating landscape.

Acceptance and adoption aren’t universal though. As expected, younger people make up the majority of online daters: 75% of online daters are under the age of 30, and 90% are under 40. Among singles who use the internet, online dating peaks at the age of 25.  This audience is truly global too, especially throughout emerging markets.

<img src="https://blog.globalwebindex.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Dating-blog-2.png" width="100%" />

Populations in these markets are generally younger, but the greater popularity holds up even after taking age differences into account. This means dating apps face larger implicit competition from other sources of socializing – dating-led or not. But it also reveals the potential to integrate with social media platforms, which we’ve already seen with Facebook announcing it was trialling a dating app.</p>

Denis Johnson Interview | Yale Literary Magazine
What appeals to you about the CIA and the FBI as material? In Tree of Smoke your characters are disillusioned with their work for the CIA. How do you feel about novels that glorify espionage?

Tree of Smoke, I think, takes its first impulse from my early background. My dad was with the US State Department, and we lived among that community in Tokyo, Manila, and Washington, DC – diplomats and military folks, including CIA and FBI.

As for novels glorifying espionage, I enjoyed James Bond when I was a kid, but I prefer the more realistic, complicated approach – Le Carré particularly, and some of Eric Ambler.

Denis Johnson, Who Wrote of the Failed and the Desperate, Dies at 67 - The New York Times
Mr. Johnson initially believed that sobriety would damage his creativity, but later realized that his addictions were not fueling much writing.

“I finally figured it only meant I’d be writing three paragraphs less a year,” he told New York magazine in 2002, “because I’d only written two stories and 37 poems in almost a decade.”
