Our friend Joichi Ito to Be Named Head of M.I.T. Media Lab @ NYTimes.com

On Tuesday, the university plans to announce that Joichi Ito, known as Joi, will become the fourth director of the M.I.T. Media Laboratory, which was originally founded by the architect Nicholas Negroponte in 1985 and has since become recognized for its willingness to take risks in developing technologies that are at the edge of the computing frontier.

The Media Laboratory gained a global reputation during the 1990s as an avant-garde research center known for stunning high-technology demonstrations that pointed toward a future digital society.

Wow! Ladyada had met Joi for the first time (in person) about 5 years ago at SXSW.
