Jun 19 14 - Oct 31 14

Muriel Cooper, Marvin Minsky, Seymour Papert: each of these three pioneers defied convention, rejected norms, and adored the impossible. Marvin taught us how uncommon common sense was. Seymour forced us to think about thinking. And Muriel showed us that the medium was not the message. Without them, the Media Lab would never be what it became.

We invite you to explore a new public exhibit in the lobby of the Media Lab (75 Amherst Street, Cambridge MA) celebrating the work of these three unique minds, and their influence and impact upon the history of the Media Lab.

Unhangout

Join 10 Media Lab students to learn more about their work and the work of their different research groups. After a short welcome, the session will break out into small group conversations where participants can ask questions and share ideas.

Each conversation will be hosted by current MIT Media Lab students, who will talk about their research, the philosophy of their groups, and what goes on at the Lab in general. The event will be hosted on the Unhangout platform, a new way of conducting large, online conversations that was developed at the Media Lab.
