Today we’ll be examining how the internet has changed the way people interact with one another.

Our first story comes to us from The Old Mole Varity Hour where Women's Studies Professor Brooke Campbell spoke with the Old Mole's Jan Haaken about recent controversies over erotic services offered on the online bulletin board, Craigslist.

Next we look at what it means to move our lives online.  We’ve found a way to do everything over the internet, and for many, its becoming a concerning issue that so much of our interaction has become virtual. Spoken word performer Jello Biafra took aim at online social networking at the recent Hacker’s on Planet Earth conference.

Finally, we take a look at e-racism.  It’s become clear that society’s problems have followed us online. At the SXSW Interactive conference this year, panelists took on the topic of racism. Latoya Peterson of Racialicious.com moderated a panel that included Jay Smooth of WBAI's Underground Railroad and Phil Yu of the Angry Asian Man blog.
