Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, and Matthew Wrather gather to overthink the social implications of the verdict against Gawker in the Hulk Hogan sex tape trial, the role of aggregation vs. curation in news publishing, the omnipresence of surveillance technology in our lives, how the culture metabolizes its own circumstances to narrativize social change, the B+ student’s version of Rawls’s veil of ignorance, and the increasingly permeable barrier between public and private.
