On Wednesday, April 26, award-winning journalist Eyal Press sat down with writer and host Patt Morrison to discuss the economic and social roots of America’s most volatile conflict: the war over abortion. Press, a regular contributor to The Nation, recently published a book, Absolute Convictions: My Father, a City, and the Conflict that Divided America, based on his own family’s experience on the front lines. During the course of the evening, he and Morrison engaged in a compelling discussion of the 1998 threat against the life of Press’ abortion provider father, and the driving passions and beliefs at odds from both sides of the embattled issue. After the program, Eyal Press posed the following question for ALOUD on the Off Ramp:

Is there any room for common ground in the abortion debate, or is it destined to be polarized in light of the deeply-held (or might it be better to say "absolute"?) convictions on both sides?

On Tuesday, January 24, 2006, as part of the WIRED Speakers Series presented by ALOUD, Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist.org, sat down with WIRED Magazine Articles Editor Thomas Goetz to discuss the implications and future of the community-run website. Newmark, a self-professed “nerd,” started craigslist in early 1995 as a means of better connecting people by letting them know about cool or useful events happening around San Francisco. The site rapidly grew and flourished into one of the Internet’s most popular destinations, a large online community, used to find anything from a house to a job, a wheelbarrow to a French teacher.

Craig Newmark posed the following question for ALOUD on the Off Ramp:

Given the increasing importance of Internet-based news and information sites (think Wikipedia, About.com, Web-MD, etc.), how do we counter disinformation attacks that use fraudulent information?
