Amy Webb: How I hacked online dating
I liked this talk very much, and it's great it had a happy ending!. But the technical question that I have is: how did she pick the threshold values? Choosing thresholds is very difficult, and from the talk it seems that only one man went over them. So the thresholds had no prior testing? She was *very* lucky.

Shereen El Feki: Pop culture in the Arab world
I agree with you that in many cases, the "mingling of religion into everyday life, laws,..." is problematic. But I think that you are wrong to assume that religion CAN be private. It can not. Religion involves praying and praising and other things that have to be private. But for believers it permeates most (or all) aspects of life, and life is as social as it's private. (It would be as supporting a football team and not getting happy when it wins a championship!). The problems start when religious laws, codes, etc... are imposed on people. For radicals it may be obvious that it should be so, but that is what sensible people have to fight against. Many times people use god and religion for their own means. Certainly religion is used too often in USA and the islamic world as a reason for things that might be difficult to support otherwise.
