From Pedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The MediaPedia is provided as an interactive reference to the MIT Media Lab's groups and projects in order to provide more community and interaction between the sponsors and researchers of the lab.

The page provides a source of information for lab sponsors about current research projects as well as a feedback mechanism for researchers to hear the compliments and critiques from sponsor visits.

What's Hot

The C4FCM/MBTA Hackathon is January 29th and 30th!

The Knight Foundation's Future of News and Civic Media Conference recently happened at MIT in the Stata Center and in the Media Lab. The following pages may be of interest to conference attendees:
