Abstract:

Founder of the MIT Media Lab, Nicholas Negroponte pushed the envelope of the information revolution as an inventor, thinker, and angel investor.

A pioneer in the field of computer-aided design, Negroponte has funded more than 40 startups and has served on the boards of such companies as Motorola and Ambient Devices. In this TEDTalk, Negroponte discusses the One Laptop per Child project, two years in. Speaking at the EG conference while the first XO laptops roll off the production line, he recaps the controversies and recommits to the goals of this far-reaching project.
