NPR: Interview on Science FridayPosted: February 7, 2011 | Author: hilary | Filed under: blog, Media | 3 Comments »
On Friday, January 28th I hopped in a cab and went up to NPR’s Bryant Park recording studio for a fifteen minute chat with Ira Flatow, host of Science Friday. I’ve been a big fan of Ira and Science Friday since I discovered the show years ago, and it was a very exciting honor to be a guest.
The image at the right is a snapshot I took with my phone while nervously waiting outside the studio.
The title of the segment is the rather dramatic Privacy At Stake As Sites Track Online Preferences. Our conversation wound around the issues of tracking user data online, and the potential opportunities and dangers that all users of online services face.
By far the most fun and unexpected aspect of this was the number of people who wrote to me to ask questions or say that they appreciated my perspective. Many of them don’t typically follow technology news or startups, and it’s exciting to hear from people who heard the interview and were intrigued.
