Feedback from our SXSW party

We appreciate all of the feedback we’ve received about the party we hosted at The Parish Underground on Saturday night at SXSW. While we received a lot of positive responses, we want to address an issue with the wristbands that were given to people who came in the door. They were offensive and in no way reflect the sentiments of the MIT Media Lab. These wristbands were provided by the venue, and while we didn’t realize what was printed on them until after they'd been handed out, we should have prevented the situation from occurring in the first place.

The Media Lab is firmly committed to supporting women in the sciences, computing, arts, and engineering. We don't like – and certainly don't want to support or disseminate – offensive messaging. We appreciate those of you who noticed the wristbands and pointed them out to us; please accept our sincere apology.

  7. After 7 years of trying to conceive I finally got pregnant and now carrying my own baby 1 weeks after I contacted him, It was simply amazing. I and my partner have been trying for a baby for over seven years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 6 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, we contacted him trough his Shankikispelltemple@yahoo.com for him to help us, then we told him our problem, then he told us that I will conceive as soon as he is done with his spell cast that it is 48 hours for me to see positive result. but after seven years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr SHANKIKI Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I will for ever remember the good work he has done for me he saved my marriage as well, if you have any problem of trying to get a baby or your ex love back, contact him on his email Shankikispelltemple@yahoo.com and get your problems solved. His powers are real, I am ashley celina
