Airing on Friday, May 8, 2015: In our series "Behind the Blue Line," we've been taking a step back to look at the job of policing. One week ago today the American Civil Liberties Union of California launched a mobile app to help people videotape police. Next, it looks like bitcoin is here to stay, at least the concept of it. We check in with one startup at Tech Crunch Disrupt in New York to find out more. And it's Friday! In today's Silicon Tally, we talk with Lily Hay Newman, staff writer for Slate, on numbers from this week's tech news.
