Monday FORUM, 4-9-12, 6-7 PM: Planetary Radio and TED Talks

First, on "Planetary Radio," from The Planetary Society, is an interview with the chief astronomer of SETI (and the inspiration for the lead character in Carl Sagan's novel, "Contact"), Jill Tarter. Then, another spirited, vital discussion from the ongoing TED conferences: "Connected, but Alone?" by Sherry Turkle, who is a leading researcher and writer about the social consequences of the Internet.
