A teenager who was forced to sit alone at school for lunch has created an app to help students sit together. The link goes to an interview, and I’m just going to share this exchange:

So you get this idea for an app, and how did you want it to work?

The way that it works is it’s a free lunch-planning app where kids can find lunch tables if they feel like they have nowhere to go. Pretty much, kids can sign up as ambassadors for a Sit With Us club and agree to post open lunches so that anyone who has the app and has nowhere to go can find a table and, hopefully, make some new friends.

Seems like a good idea. It’s a good read.
