Joi Ito named head of MIT Media Lab

I just wanted to throw up a quick post to congratulate Joi Ito on his new position as the head of the MIT Media Lab. I first met Joi years ago through his IRC channel, which played an integral role in exposing me to the internet and its culture, and gave me a wonderful community of friends all over the world. Joi’s work is a great example of how embracing technology can make the world a better place, and I’m sure we’ll see exciting things happen during his tenure at MIT.

Update: Joi’s post about this.
