This Chinese Policeman Builds The World's Top Gay Dating App. Now He Wants More International Users

Portraits of naked young men hang alongside the stairs to Mao Baoli’s office. In the middle of this 10 square meter zone is a shirtless picture of Ma himself, and the seven other founding members of Danlan.org, the most popular gay discussion forum in China. Ma Baoli, who goes by the alias Geng Le, had been a policeman in the northern Hebei province for almost 20 years. He was forced to quit the job in 2012, when people found out he had secretly moderated Danlan at night. “When I came out, my mother thought I had gone bad,” he says. “At that time she thought gays were hooligans.”

Why 'The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt' Is Better Than 'Game Of Thrones'

We'll address an important distinction first. One of these things -- The Witcher 3 -- is a video game. The other -- Game of Thrones -- is a TV show (unless otherwise specified, I'm talking about the show). These two media are different, there's no way around it: one is interactive, non-linear and requires skills to experience, the other moves in one direction, involves real people and moves forward whether you ask it to or not. In some ways, it's comparing Apples and Oranges. Then again, I've never really understood that saying: both of those things are round tree fruits. As far as things in the world go, they're pretty similar. And so are Game of Thrones and The Witcher 3. Ultimately, I'm more interested in the ways in which they're similar than the ways in which they're different.

Game of Thrones' Biggest Problem Isn't The Boltons, It's Dorne

Last week, I opted to skip the debate that ensued after a particularly controversial sequence (spoilers) in which Ramsay Bolton not only rapes his new bride Sansa Stark on their wedding night, but makes Theon Greyjoy watch as he does so. The act set off an explosive chain reaction among fans, some of whom defended the show’s right to do whatever it wants, and cited a long history of similarly despicable acts in both the HBO series and books to show how it wasn’t outside of the norm. On the other side, many longtime fans announced that because the show has such a long history of similarly despicable acts, this was the straw that broke the camel’s back, and they’re leaving for good.

A Very Good Week In Healthcare Thought: Four Developments To Feel Good About

While many have questioned the relevance of individual metrics, or the wisdom of insisting on particular process metrics, Gardner is actually making a different, and I think even more important point here: you can’t look at individual metrics in a vacuum. There’s an opportunity cost each time we’re compelled to comply with specific metrics, and so even if each of these metrics individually makes sense, there’s an interaction effect, and collectively, something is lost.
