Midmorning: An Internet pioneer and more than a skin deep look at skin

Posted at 7:36 AM on April 9, 2007 by Bill Wareham

At 9 a.m., an Internet pioneer talks about the dawn and development of a technology we lean on every day, and about the next frontier in computer technology. Kerri Miller's guest is Mark McCahill, assistant director of the University Technology Development Center at the University of Minnesota.

At 10 a.m., Kerri's guest is Nina Jablonski, author of Skin: A Natural History and head of the anthropology department at Penn State University. Jablonski delved into the study of human skin, and found that the ubiquitous and enigmatic substance that covers our bodies played a vital role in how we evolved.
