“Sit with Us”

That is the name of a cool new App created by Natalie Hampton, a teenager from Sherman Oaks, California. Her App helps school kids navigate what one blogger (Maddy Myers) calls “the politics of the lunch table.” According to Ms Myers, “kids who use the App can designate themselves as ‘ambassadors’ and then post ‘open lunch’ events at specific tables, where anyone can come and sit down. Kids can also request to join tables through the App rather than getting shunned, ignored, or mocked once they reach the table in person.” Kudos to Ms Hampton! (Hat tip: Tyler Cowen, rock star of the Internet.)
