Description

We've reached a point as a society where meeting online is meeting the old-fashioned way. But if you've ever dipped a toe in the online dating pool, you know that just like the human matchmakers (cough: MOMS) who came before them, online dating sites have a pretty touch and go success rate, and an utterly mystifying system of how they determine a suitable date for you. Oh, you're interested in fitness and read a lot of books? Then you'll love this guy who writes Buffy: The Vampire Slayer fan fiction and lives with ten other guys in what could loosely be described as an apartment!

After a series of online dating strikeouts, Amy Webb took her data and her dating life into her own hands. The result: a happy marriage and a successful book about her online dating endeavor, Data: A Love Story.

If you like love, the internet, data and books, you're going to have an awesome time at this event.

If you don't like these things, WHO ARE YOU?!
