Black millennials are tech savvy, influential and spending about a $162 billion a year, according to a 2016 Nielsen study. And yet, black people are incredibly underrepresented in tech and media. Enter Blavity, a digital lifestyle brand for millennials of color. It started in 2014 and raised $6.5 million in venture funding earlier this year. Blavity's founders say its advantage is its community members who pay to attend to events, and companies will pay to interact with them. Jeff Nelson is a co-founder and chief technical officer at Blavity. Marketplace Tech’s Molly Wood met him last week at one the...

Justin Miller served for 11 years in the U.S. Army and deployed twice to Iraq. He was medically retired, suffering from severe PTSD.
“When I got out, I felt like I failed,” Miller said. “I felt like I was broken. I felt like I had nobody to talk to.”

Now Miller and Mercado have collaborated with a team to build the...

We dig into this in Quality Assurance, the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Issie Lapowsky, a senior writer for Wired covering politics and national affairs, tells Marketplace Tech's Molly...
You know those music videos you love on YouTube and the memes you love to laugh at? Well, proposed digital copyright laws in Europe and other countries kind of want to make those a little less common. It's a 20-year-old copyright law here in the U.S. called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA that's behind the proposed changes.
Cory Doctorow is a writer and activist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He calls the DMCA a "big gnarly hairball of a law."
He and the EFF have been talking about and litigating over the unintended consequences of the DMCA for almost 20...
Email can be a vulnerable way to communicate, especially if you're sending around valuable information because you're a politician, journalist or an activist. High-profile email users are targets for hackers, who try to get them to click the wrong link and give up their passwords. Google offers a version of Gmail with extra security — you need a physical USB key to log in. Anyone can use it, but Google markets it to high-profile users. Mark Risher, head of Google's Account Security team and a creator of its Advanced Protection Program, talked to Molly Wood about it. The following is...
