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.
Music for this show was provided by Heather Perkins.
