What’s new at the MIT Center for Future Civic Media?

Chris Csikszentmihályi, director of the Center for Future Civic Media, hosts this presentation by the MIT Communications Forum and the Center for Future Civic Media


Based on this roster of speakers, the MIT Center for Future Civic Media
exists in a constant state of productive ferment, if not adrenaline
rush. In a series of brief, timed talks, 13 researchers describe
projects to help communities leverage self-knowledge into useful change
or even transformation. (From MIT World)

“We’re taking a
step back, (trying) to re-imagine technologies so they’re built on the
level of the community, not just on the level of the individual
consumer. We imagine technologies will strengthen social bonds and
empower communities.”
—Chris Csikszentmihályi
