Fifty years after King was assassinated, we review King's lesser known legacy and how it is used against activists today.
Guest Host: Jen Golbeck
Steve Case had a vision for a digital future when he entered the tech world in the early 1980s, starting a series of companies that eventually evolved into America Online, or AOL. Through the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, he led AOL from Northern Virginia, and in 2005, he co-founded Washington-based Revolution, an investment firm that supports forward-thinking companies. Case says he particularly looks for companies that share his belief that we’re on the cusp of tech’s third wave: when internet will be a seamless part of everything around us. He chats with guest host Jen Golbeck about the local tech scene and his new book, “The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future.”
