MITX Fireside Chat with Larry Weber & Joi Ito, MIT Media Lab

January 10, 2012

On January 10, 2012, W2 Group Chairman Larry Weber moderated a MITX Fireside Chat with the new Director of the MIT Media Lab, Joi Ito. The one-on-one conversation revealed Joi’s, and the MIT Media Lab’s, view on the convergence of social, design and mobility in creating impactful innovations.

A well-known thinker, venture capitalist, and Internet entrepreneur, Joi recently took over the MIT Media Lab as its fourth Director. Joi’s vision for the Lab merges the East Coast’s long term focus with the West Coast’s agile approaches, turning the Lab into a place to “build stuff” that has long-term, powerful effects.
