John Hockenberry is a longtime friend of the Media Lab, and whenever he heads to Cambridge to take the helm at our events it's a indication that an event will be extra special. He just plain gets us, and it shows when he emcees events here—he asks compelling questions and can keep a conversation going like nobody's business (which you know from hearing him on his public radio show, The Takeaway).
The Media Lab has hundreds of people coming up with an idea a minute. This April, with John's assistance, we'll focus on exploring the intersections of nature and technology. Whether you're an invited guest here at the Lab or a virtual guest joining us via webcast, tune in April 24 and 25 to explore the ongoing work at the Media Lab.
Here's a video of John from our 25th anniversary celebration in October 2010 in discussion with Google's Eric Schmidt and a group of Media Lab faculty members.
