eWaste and "Green" Energy

program: 
The Digital Divide
program date: 
Wed, 12/17/2008

This month, the Digital Divide looks at the environment and what technology is doing to help or harm it. 

We speak with a pioneering nonprofit that is battling the growing amount of eWaste and talk to a justice organization on just how green many of the next generation energy technologies really are.

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.

Technology and the Elections

program: 
The Digital Divide
program date: 
Wed, 11/19/2008

This program begins with a roundup of technology news from around the world and then provides in-depth feature stories from a variety of reporters. 

In our pilot show we cover the recent elections - how technology was used to get out the vote and also prevent it.  We feature an interview with one of the communications collective members for those who protested the Republican National Convention.  We'll also hear from Tim Jones of the Electronic Frontier Foundation on what to expect from an Obama administration and what changes they are proposing be made to improve our digital civil liberties.
