Each week, Salon Technology's writers discuss the latest news in high tech. This week Janelle Brown talks about Monday's appeals court ruling against the file-trading service Napster and the future of music distribution on the Web.
Technology reporters from Salon appear weekly on "Beyond Computers," a Public Radio International show that 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.
