By Jennifer Napier-Pearce
Salt Lake City, Utah – A university denies a student her teaching certificate because of photos posted online. A tourist is turned away at the border because of an online article describing his drug use 30 years ago.

Tuesday, guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks with the scholar Jeffrey Rosen about the cost of living in an everlasting digital age.
Read Jeffrey Rosen's The Web Means the End of Forgetting in The New York Times Magazine.
