Airing on Thursday, May 7, 2015: First, we talk with Neema Singh Guliani, the legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union, about the U.S.A. Freedom Act. Next, we chat with Chester Wisniewski, Senior Security Advisor at Sophos, about what a single, European digital marketplace could mean for Europe’s cloud storage industry. Finally, an Austin-based program called three Day Startup teaches kids to code, build an app, and pitch it to venture capitalists – all in the course of a couple of weeks.  It’s part of a trend toward teaching kids complex skills in a short period of time.
