Girls Will Be Techies

Iridescent, an educational center promoting science (which likes homeschoolers, by the way). Girls in Tech, a social network promoting women’s technological creativity. Google. Microsoft. And a bunch of teen girls. End result? A phone application that tells you who you’re going to marry.

After hearing about the winning Technovation Challenge (iridescent, git) team’s idea, I had to find the video to see for myself. I never was into fortune-telling games as a kid, but I do remember another girl teaching me M.A.S.H. (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House). (I didn’t like the outcome.) However, the phone application was a rather clever proposal to make, and proves that they know their clientele.
