Endless Replay, Continued

My post on surveillance creating an “endless replay” has some more playful applications, as well. Consider the “Groundhog Date” now marketed by Match.com: “Partnering with an LA based company … that matches people to dates using facial recognition software, users will be asked to send in pictures of their exes, which will be used to determine who they will be matched with on the site.” Critics are aghast at the prospect of outsourcing our humanity. However habitual our actions may be, no one wants to be typecast as a typecaster.
