Hackers are meeting in Las Vegas to discuss cybersecurity problems — and solutions. Video game designer Jennifer Shanley presented her Summer Reading Series book choice. Mid-career — and unpaid — internships are beginning to become a trend. Kai spoke with author Alicia Oltuski about how New York’s Diamond District has changed.
