Afternoon Shift

About

A daily conversation about news, culture and ideas.

May. 22, 2012

We've made it through NATO which means a NATO-free show for Afternoon Shift! Well, maybe not completely. WGN's Randi Belisomo and Steve Dahl will review some of the action in our 3@3 segment. Your smartphone was probably a huge source of coverage from the Summit and protests, but it can also be your worst enemy! In terms of privacy at least. Sometimes, you’ve opted in on the social surveillance by using apps that intentionally let people in on where you’re hangin’. Ars Technica’s Jacqui Cheng tells us how to take yourself somewhat off the grid, and cover your mobile tracks. Bette Cerf Hill tells us more about the history of the Printer's Row Book fair, and her efforts to celebrate the literary arts.
