Negroponte Not Far Enough Out On The Lunatic Fringe
from the is-that-so? dept
Nicholas Negroponte, who many say was always a little too far out on the edge with his technology predictions during the boom years, says that he needs to get even crazier. He's specifically talking about his much hyped, but unimpressive so far, expansion of MIT's Media Lab to Ireland. He says that most complaints from the industry these days are that the stuff they're working on isn't far enough out on the fringe. Next generation research can be done by the companies themselves. They look to the Media Lab to see what's coming a few generations down the road.
