Boston Remembers Steve Jobs

Boston Remembers Steve Jobs 
All around the world and all around the web, tributes and reaction are pouring in on the news that Apple visionary Steve Jobs has died at the age of 56. President Barack Obama says Jobs was, “bold enough to believe he could change the world and talented enough to do it.” For the whole hour today, we’ll reflect on the life and legacy of Steve Jobs with those who knew him and covered him – from his impact on the way we consume media to this ability to make technology accessible to regular people and his genius for marketing and public relations.

Guests:
Dan Kennedy, Northeastern University Assistant Professor of journalism, media critic, author of the Media Nation blog
Dan Moren, reporter and editor at Macworld
Howard Anderson, Senior Lecturer, MIT Entrepreneurship Center
Hiawatha Bray, Boston Globe technology reporter
Adi Ignatius, Editor, Harvard Business Review
Nancy Keohn, Harvard Business School

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
