Episode 1: Moving from URL TO IRL
Sometimes technologies take on a life of their own and end up doing things we never dreamed of. We have three stories about technologies that started out doing one thing, and ended up doing quite another with potentially dangerous consequences — from online tractors, to an unusual use of tasers, to a gang of cell phone hackers who’s online battles violently burst into the real world.

"Click Here" is a five-part special series, telling true stories about the people making and breaking our digital world. Hosted by former NPR Investigations correspondent Dina Temple-Raston.
