Original tape date: May 11, 2011.
A look at how al Quada and other jihadist groups are using the tools and tricks of game theory to increase recruitment and loyalty with Alix Levine, Director of Research for Cronos Global. Then, in his book “The Internet of Elsewhere,” journalist Cyrus Farivar sought to understand how the Internet is changing society in Iran, Estonia, South Korea, and Senegal. Finally, Senate Democrats are reintroducing the DREAM Act, the bill that would give legal status to the children of undocumented immigrants who go to college or serve in the military. We examine how those kids are using social media to network and avoid deportation with Juan of the group DreamActivist.org.
