On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
The debate has been simmering for years: is the online world less “real” than the physical world? It’s a question that is taking on new urgency with growing concern about online harassment and its real-life consequences, especially among young people. Penn State recently suspended a fraternity for allegedly posting nude photos of women on Facebook. Meanwhile parents and educational institutions around the country are debating how to address a controversial, anonymous chat app called Yik Yak. We explore the fading distinction between on and off line.
