Nineteen-year-old Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi was convicted of a hate crime for using a webcam to spy on his roommate, who later committed suicide. But should the way young people are using technology be taken into account in cases like this? Danah Boyd, a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research and an expert on youth and social media and CJ Pascoe, a Professor at Colorado College and author of "Dude, You're a Fag: Masculinity & Sexuality in High School," join us to discuss the verdict and how the law looks at social media. Then, investigative journalist Tracie McMillan went undercover and worked as a farm laborer, at a Walmart, and at an Applebee's to learn how the American food system works. We'll talk about her book, "The American Way of Eating." Then Crain's New York Business reporter Daniel Massey joins the discussion to focus on the future of Walmart in New Yor
k City. And we preview The Great GoogaMooga Festival, coming soon to Prospect Park, with Jonathan Mayers, one of its organizers.
