The Digital Divide

How do the latest technologies affect our communities? How can we use science to benefit society and how do we keep it from harming us?

KBOO's The Digital Divide attempts to answer these questions and ask a few of our own through interviews, recordings, and commentary. The show touches upon such issues as open source, privacy, transparency, intellectual property, free speech, accessibility, hacking, net neutrality, file sharing, piracy, social networking, pollution, bioethics and more.

What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Today on the Digital Divide we'll hear a talk on What Journalism Can Learn from Science, from a recorded A session at SXSW Interactive 2012. Today's talk will feature Gideon Lichfield, Media Editor for The Economist and Matt Thompson, Editorial Manager at NPR.

The scientific method revolutionized the world of truth-seeking. Yet journalism - which, like science, seeks truth - is far less rigorous. We’ll walk through why this gap has led to record levels of distrust in journalism, and why journalism that’s replicable, trackable, and reviewable can help to restore that trust.
