What will happen in your session?

I realize it seems trivial to people thinking only of press freedom, but romance and sexuality are a huge part of human existence. Almost all major dating sites are owned by a single company (Match.com). It's an area that requires privacy and gradual disclosure. Open dating systems are fascinating -- posting one or more profiles on the open web in a way that preserves your privacy but allows gradual disclosure and connection.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

We will discuss how to implement open dating systems and see if we can kickstart a dating network.

This is an important topic that I know only a little bit about. But I think it's very important and there are some really juicy technical issues.

Such a great topic and take on the issues with the lack of decentralization.
I wrote about this many times and even suggested a way to maybe do this correctly

It was laughed about but discussed at Mozretreat as "Blockchain dating"
