Episode Details

Original tape date: June 29, 2011.

We take a point-counterpoint look at the Supreme Court's finding that violent video games are protected free speech with Svetlana Mintcheva of the National Coalition Against Censorship and Tim Winter of the Parents' Television Council. Then, our Start-Up City series continues with Artsicle. We examine the clash between privacy and cybersecurity with Susan Landau, the author of "Surveillance or Security." The Freedom Box may one day circumvent web censorship. James Vasile of the Software Freedom Law Center explains. And finally, the Moby Awards recognize the best and worst in book trailers. We'll screen a few with Dennis Johnson, founder of Melville House Publishers.
