High Technology; Massive Impact

At tonight's Deshpande Center gathering, I connected with both Charlie Cooney, Faculty Director of the Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, and Alec Dingee, Founder of the MIT Venture Mentoring Service. Both rockstars in the MIT venture ferment.

I shared our latest Howtoons with both of them, especially our new book HOWTOONS: The Possibilities Are Endless published by Harper Collins.

Also connected MIT Nuclear Engineering Research Scientist Dick Lanza with MIT HST Professor Utkan Demirci. Lanza's first Deshpande grant for Low Cost X-Rays remains a really great open opportunity. Demirci's Health Technology Innovations class in Spring 2008 might be just the venue for escalating this idea!

Afterwards went to the MIT Muddy Charles Pub for chat with Cory Kidd, imminent alumnus from the MIT Media Lab Robotic Life Group.

Beyond that was a crazy extended interlude best left undocumented...
