All TECH Considered Series: 'Artists and Criminals'

On NPR's blog All Tech Considered, reporter Laura Sydell is taking a look at how artists and criminals use high-tech devices and software to disrupt the reality that the inventors envisioned. Her reports show that because artists and criminals don't bother to follow established rules, what they can imagine -- and do -- can reveal how emerging technologies will actually change the world. This five-part series airs on the newsmagazines through the weekend and ending on Monday, Feb. 26.
