Skout’s Honor

As technology becomes increasingly more sophisticated, we’re often presented with odd juxtapositions.  And most of the time, sex is at the forefront of any technological advancement.

Pornography is often considered as one of the driving forces behind the early expansion of the world wide web. Pornographic images had been transmitted over the Internet as ASCII porn but to send images over network needed computers with graphics capability and also higher network bandwidth.

That’s right… if the OG nerds didn’t realize they could use computers to whack it, we might still be writing letters.

The mobile revolution is bringing proximity and location-based services to the forefront, and with it comes the temptation of using said technology to sow one’s royal oats.

Enter Skout fpr the iPhone and Android:

Skout is a mobile, real-time, location-based dating platform that helps people meet singles in their vicinity by chatting and sharing photos and other user-generated content.

Am I the only one that thinks that there is no chance girls use this app?  Everyone knows hot chicks don’t need the internet to get laid.  You only need one lonely night with a few bottles of MD 20/20 and Craigslist to figure that out.  Why on earth would they rely on mobile?

Skout had 1 million sign ups as of July 2010.  Odds are that 999,000 of them are dudes.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be using Skout to tap into that 1,000.
