Technology reporters from Salon also appear weekly on "Beyond Computers," a Public Radio International show, which airs on more than 200 stations around the country. The show 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.
