312: How We Talked Back Then
Act Two


In this show, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Ira and David Hauptschein explored this now utterly quaint question: Are people having experiences on the Internet they wouldn't have anywhere else? Several hundred listeners sent in samples of what they were finding on the Internet. A guy offers a girl a late-night tour of Microsoft...and this actually makes him seem hot. A guy finds a website for aluminum ball enthusiasts. And Jennifer Ringley talks about how—and why—she kept a web camera — the Jennicam—running in her dorm room 24 hours a day. (39 minutes)
