The Ideas Economy: Nicholas Negroponte

Founder of MIT's Media Lab and author of Being Digital (1995), which became known for its detailed analysis of emerging technologies and their impact on day-to-day life (predicting, among other things, the demise of physical format media such as VHS, CDs, etc.), Nicholas Negroponte is a well-known and highly respected figure in the tech world.  He is also founder and chairman of One Laptop per Child (, a nonprofit organization seeking to provide highly durable, inexpensive, solar-powered laptops to children in the developing world.

His expansive views on the relationship between technology and culture are especially interesting.

Do enjoy!
