Does tech encourage ghosting? | Why'd You Push That Button?

The Verge’s Why’d You Push That Button podcast is recording at SXSW at 5PM ET in front of a live audience! Join Ashley Carman and Kaitlyn Tiffany as they discuss how tech makes ghosting easier than ever in Austin. They’ll be joined by OkCupid engineering manager Jordan Guggenheim, who’s going to explain how dating app designers think about human behavior. Can they con us into treating each other kindly? Should they throw up their hands and let us break each other’s hearts? Dr. Jess Carbino, the in-house sociologist at Bumble, will also weigh in from the human nature side of things.
