Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

I recently had a Facebook Live conversation with Shaka Senghor, a Media Lab Director's Fellow and author. Shaka spent 19 years in prison for second-degree murder. In prison Shaka found a path to redemption initially through reading and then writing. I met him just after he had come out of prison. You can read more about this in the foreword to his book that I wrote.

Shaka's an amazing leader, writer, inspiration and an important voice behind the fight against the systematic mass incarceration in the US.

We talk about prison, his book, Writing My Wrongs and a bit about Whiplash.

Audio of the conversation is available on iTunes and SoundCloud.
