Tech Refactored


Tech Refactored

The Nebraska Governance and Technology Center studies the ever-changing relationship between law and technology – how the law can regulate technology and how new technologies affect what the law can do. Our podcast, Tech Refactored, shares the research and expertise coming from the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center.

The podcast is hosted by our founder and director Gus Hurwitz and produced by Lysandra Marquez and Elsbeth Magilton. You can also catch Tech Refactored on 90.3 KRNU in the Lincoln area.

Ep. 5 - What is Law and Tech? Pt. 2

Wed, 12/16/2020

Our Center studies the intersection of law and technology, but what does that really mean? Over two episodes of Tech Refactored we asked six scholars writing in this area to give us their take. In the first episode in this two-part series we asked, ‘What is Law?’ and ‘What is Technology?’ This, our second episode on the subject, builds on that discussion to ask what we are doing when we are studying law and technology. Does the field stand alone as its own discipline?

Ep. 4 - What is Law and Tech? Pt. 1

Wed, 12/16/2020

We study the intersection of law and technology, but that begs the question - what do we mean when we say law and technology? Over the next two episodes of Tech Refactored we’ve asked six scholars writing in this area to give us their take. The first episode in this two-part series asks ‘What is Law? What is Technology? ZOMG What is Law and Technology?’ and if that sounds like it’s going to get esoteric, it’s because it is.
