The MIT Media Lab is a place for making connections: connecting people and technology, connecting researchers across diverse disciplines, and connecting the physical and local to the digital and remote. Most importantly, though, the Lab is about connecting people to one another. Our kickoff panel is centered on what is fresh and exciting at the Media Lab and how the Lab and its projects connect to the world.
We’ll tell you what cool stuff is happening under our new director Joi Ito, demo some exciting projects on the boundary between business, open source,and academia, show how we navigate the benefits and challenges along this boundary, introduce you to all the other activities and events we’ll be hosting at SXSW, including our ongoing hacking.
