In Iceland, a country with a population of 320,000 where most everyone is distantly related, inadvertently kissing cousins is a real risk.The app was created by three University of Iceland software engineering students for a contest calling for "new creative uses" of the Islendingabok, or Book of Icelanders, an online database of residents and their family trees stretching back 1,200 years.Arnar Freyr Adalsteinsson, one of the trio, said it allows any two Icelanders to see how closely related they are, simply by touching phones."A small but much talked about feature is the loosely translated ' Incest Prevention Alarm' that users can enable through the options menu which notifies the user if the person he's bumping with is too closely related," Adalsteinsson said. Their descendants built a small, relatively homogenous and — crucially — well-organized country, home to the world's oldest parliament and devoted to thorough record-keeping."The Icelandic sagas, written about 1,000 years ago, all begin with page after page of genealogy.Compiled using census data, church records, family archives and a host of other information sources, it claims to have information on 95 per cent of all Icelanders who have lived in the last 300 years.

I never thought my life would come to this but it has. I really enjoy it.” He would start work at 2pm every day and watch an edited version of the show — which was almost always what audiences at home saw that evening.
