MIT Media Lab: Making Connections
    Friday March 9, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Salon FG) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    The MIT Media Lab is a place for making connections: connecting peopleand technology, connecting researchers across diverse disciplines, andconnecting the physical and local to the digital and remote. Mostimportantly, though, the Lab is about connecting people to oneanother. Our kickoff panel is centered on what is fresh and exciting at the MediaLab 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 and demo area,and get you started on the Making Connections Installation, our platform for hooking conference attendees and distant onlookers into our digital-physical games, art, and silliness.
