In the Nicholas Negroponte keynotes we see a different point of view when it comes to careers and following the path-least-followed for the most meaningful results.
As the founder and first director of MIT's Media Lab, Negroponte has been a big part of the multimedia revolution. He is also a generous investor when it comes to start-ups -- Negroponte has funded more than 40 start-ups and was an original investor in Wired. He even wrote a column in the magazine for five years in which he explored the frontiers of technology. This column then expanded to become Negroponte's first debut in the publishing field with his best-selling book 'Being Digital'.
Serving on the boards of companies such as Motorola and Ambient Devices, as well as being the founder and chairman of the One Laptop per Child non-profit association, Negroponte finds success in everything he throws his passion into.
