Hearsay Culture shows 136 and 137 -- Prof. David Post and Kevin Poulsen -- posted

At long last (end of semester craziness, primarily, caused the delay), I am pleased to post two new shows!

The first, Show #136, April 12 is my interview with Prof. David Post of Temple University Beasley School of Law, author of In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace. David's book analyzes the writing of Thomas Jefferson and applies his writings to today's Internet law challenges. This unique contribution to cyberlaw literature produces many insights into how the Internet might be regulated, and we discussed several in this fun interview.

The second, Show #137, April 19, is my interview with Kevin Poulsen of Wired Magazine, author of Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion Dollar Cyber Crime Underground. Kevin has written a fascinating account of Max Butler, a notorious hacker who went from "white hat" to "black hat" over the course of several years and wound up masterminding a major criminal operation. In our discussion, Kevin shares his insights, based upon his own background as a hacker, not only on the story of Butler but the state of technology today. As a leading technology journalist, Kevin's insights are valuable and I enjoyed the discussion!

More shows coming soon! [Cross posted at Hearsay Culture].
