1. If the Ivy League were going to create a town it would probably be a lot like Los Alamos. It's a pretty intimidating place since the middle schoolers there are smarter than I am. Seriously.

    I worked with a 6th grader to create a podcast about the ways technology is viewed and used in Los Alamos. But because Los Alamos is sort of an anomaly in New Mexico (we were told it's the most affluent county with the highest-performing schools in the whole state) we decided to include a rural village called Chimayo as part of our investigation. A 12-year-old and a student of NPR working together to create a podcast in a short period of time (largely by sending mp3 files and comments back and forth for weeks on end) was quite an undertaking. Sometimes thrilling, sometimes hilarious, and sometimes maddening. But definitely rewarding.

  3. Karina Bustos moved from South America to the United States with her mom for a better life. This is an often-voiced motivation by the Latinos who make up some 36 percent of residents around El Mirage, Arizona. After five years here, the 23-year-old is working three jobs so that one day she can continue her education, leave El Mirage, and be reunited with her husband. She uses technology to communicate with him, though it’s tough. He’s isolated, too – serving on a boat in the Colombian navy.

  4. Jim Heinrich was at a crossroads. It wasn’t until one break-up and a subsequent divorce that he decided that something needed to change. He was 40-years-old when it finally happened. In this conversation, Jim tells his two granddaughters why technology could have helped him find himself much sooner.
