Missing Connections
February 2020

No sooner is technology conceived than it gets personal. Humans have been defined by our scope of tool use, and this extends effortlessly into our complex interpersonal relationships. So naturally computer dating preexists both the internet and the home computer by years, first deployed by Harvard students in Operation Match, on a mainframe, in 1965. ARPANET, the major precursor of the internet, wouldn't even emerge until 1969. Fifty years later, the evolving technologically-mediated match has been joined by leaps in telecommunications, genetics, pharmacology and every other zone of scientific advancement -- so many apparatuses that may bring us together or keep us apart. And what is their net effect? Are we closer or further than before? And in another fifty years? Happy Valentine's Day, dear viewers.
