A Modest Proposal: Recruit The Hackers

Produced by
Sean Cole

Guest host Sean Cole talks to military defense specialist John Arquilla, who says the U.S. government should hire hackers - instead of prosecuting them. Sean then checks in with Gabriella Coleman, who studies the ethics of hacking. Coleman says that her contact with hackers indicates that they would not want to work with a government that encroaches on online privacy.
