    This is incredible, and feels like the start of something that breaks down the cold, lonely barrier of watching videos online.

      very true - also the barriers of emotion in general. Her earlier research was on suicide prevention. I think that is an interesting thing to understand as context for this project - if there are more outlets for showing public signs of "crying," things aren't kept as bottled up, and people will be more comfortable with themselves in general.

    Why am I so intrigued by this?

      I think there is just something really beautiful about creating a tool to allow users to cry - it so much more human than a "thumbs up," ya know?
