The Callie Crossley Show 8/24/10
Race Dynamics In Cyberspace: Do social media sites reflect divisions present in everyday life? We're joined by Danah Boyd, Social Media Researcher at Microsoft Research New England whose research shows the internet is not as free and open as we might like; and Omar Wasow, a tech expert and founder of the social media site, Black Planet.
Line Rage: With layoffs at the RMV making for even longer lines, we'll talk about how we behave when we stand in line, and strategies for making the wait more bearable. We're joined by MIT Professor Dick Larson, whose research on the psychology of waiting in line has earned him the title, Dr. Queue; and Julien Chabbott, a Babson graduate who developed the iPhone Application, LineSnob.
