04/18/2017: The third wave of tech

Facebook's developer conference, known as F8, kicks off in San Jose, California today. We'll hear from Wired's Cade Metz about what the social media giant is trying to get developers to do for them. Afterwards, we'll look at another tech conference that recently look place. Rise of the Rest, the brainchild of former AOL CEO Steve Case, champions entrepreneurs from all across the U.S. Case chatted with us about his effort to make sure venture capital gets evenly distributed across the country, and what he thinks the "third wave of tech" will consist of. Afterwards, we'll interview one Rise of the Rest attendee, entrepreneur Amy Johnson, about her Omaha-based company LifeLoop. The startup aims to keep those in retirement communities better connected with their families and staff.
