Each week Janelle Brown, Katharine Mieszkowski and Damien Cave discuss the latest news in the world of technology.
This week Damien Cave corrects a soundbite that we all largely take for granted -- the idea that Al Gore claimed to have "invented the Internet" -- and Katharine Mieszkowski explains why Microsoft shareholders are concerned about "soft money" contributions to political candidates.
Technology reporters from Salon.com also appear weekly on Beyond Computers, a Public Radio International show, which airs on more than 200 stations around the country. Every week Beyond Computers explores the pervasive influence of technology on humanity -- from family, beauty and art, to law, politics and the environment. On the show, our writers give their opinionated takes on the biggest technology stories of the week.
