    Radio Specials Computer History Museum Presents Akamai Co-Founder and CEO Tom Leighton -- Akamai's beginnings lie in a challenge posed by World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee at MIT in early 1995. Berners-Lee foresaw the congestion that is now very familiar to Internet users, and he challenged colleagues at MIT to invent a fundamentally new and better way to deliver Internet content. MIT professor Tom Leighton was intrigued by the challenge, and recognized that a solution could be found in applied mathematics and algorithms. The company launched commercial service in 1999 and announced that one of the world's most trafficked Web properties, Yahoo!, was a charter customer. Now, its customers include the top 30 media and entertainment companies, the top 60 e-commerce companies, all branches of the U.S. military and all major sports leagues. Akamai delivers between 15 to 30 percent of all Web traffic, and delivers over 2 trillion daily Internet interactions. Tom Leighton will discuss his distinguished career, and give listeners a peek under the hood at one of the world's leading Internet infrastructure companies.

    Forum New Policy for Transgender Admissions at Mills College Transgender students that identify as female will now be considered for enrollment at Mills College, an all-female school in Oakland.

More and more, people are moving to places where they're surrounded by others like themselves. The program features stories of this new kind of migration, of people moving to different corners of the country to find --or build -- themselves a haven.
