It’s hard not to love Cambridge and the greater Boston area. An elegant skyline draping itself across the Charles River, surrounded by world class academic institutions. A highly innovative, collaborative, and solutions-driven climate which promises refinement and an irreverent insistence that the world’s problems will be tackled and changed by its inhabitants.
Nay, this is not a Frommer’s testimonial, but a prelude to my hearty endorsement of EmTech 2013, day one.
Since 1999, MIT Technology Review’s mission of identifying important new technologies and deciphering their practical impact has manifested in EmTech, a gathering of the sharpest minds in the technology, engineering, academic, startup, and management communities to provide insight into the innovations that shape the world and business. Held at MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA, this showcase for emerging technologies with the greatest potential to change lives continues to attract worldwide interest and attendance. It’s an extraordinary opportunity to glimpse the future, drive the new global economy, and inspire.
