"We started out wanting to make apps for the community," says Asha Richardson, a 2013 Mills College graduate and the manager of the Innovation Lab. "But now we've decided to take data to tell stories or make up apps that collect data to tell more informed stories."
But there is a strong voice on the internet justifying this meme saying, essentially, "If you don't put incriminating pictures online, you won't get portrayed in a way you don't want to be."
"If you can't have a conversation with someone that you're about to have sex with, that is an indication that you should not be intimate physically" she says
