WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[edit]


How would an internet-centric Media Lab at WUaS look, in each of 3,000-8,000 languages and in around 200 countries, building on/extending the MIT Media Lab? I'd like to suggest that all of MIT and all of World Univ & Sch are Media Labs themselves ... with an invitation to play and make here.
