Airing on Friday, Feb. 20, 2015: Cyber crime has been in the news a lot lately. It's become a big enough problem that the White House is hosting summits on it, and even establishing a brand new agency to fight it. Today, we speak with Maria Tcherni, assistant professor of criminal justice at the University of New Haven, about the rise of cybercrime compared to other types of property theft. Next up is our segment from our series on Hollywood vs Silicon Valley - we talk with Todd Wagner, co-founder of Broadcast.com and co-owner of 2929 Entertainment, about rethinking the Hollywood distribution model. For this week's Silicon Tally, we have Janet Vertesi, a sociologist and historian of science and technology at Princeton.
