The 'Sorcerers' of the MIT Media Lab

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Over the past 25 years, the MIT Media Lab has developed the technology behind a wide variety of devices, from e-book readers to robotic prosthetic limbs. The academics who call the Lab home work in a unique environment, where disciplines break down and professionals from diverse fields collaborate to create and innovate. Frank Moss was the Director of the MIT Media Lab from 2005 to 2010. He describes his experiences in his new book, "The Sorcerers and their Apprentices."

Frank Moss joins us in the studio to discuss his new book and the culture of innovation at the MIT Media Lab.
