Kissing Cousins? There’s an App for That

Well, maybe this is distant enough.

When technology is invented, the creators cannot possibly foresee how the technology will be used or what needs it will satisfy.

In Iceland, where everyone is related in some way, there is an App that allows you to determine if that person you are chatting up at the local is closely related to you.  It can save some embarrassing moments at a family reunion.

Much is always made about technology being used for ill.  And it has been used for ill and always will be.  But most things are invented to bring some good to the world.  It can even address some of the odd needs of humanity.
