Xerox PARC Turns 40 and the MIT Media Lab Turns 25

I've been a follower of two institutions most of my career, the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), the people that brought you the concept of Windows and the laser printer; and the MIT Media Lab, much of the computing ideas behind networking your TV, mobile phone, and other devices in your home.

Well, the PARC turns 40 this year and the MIT Media Lab is now 25 years old, and the thought of the ideas to be born from the media lab over the next 25 years, and what is coming out the the PARC just excites me.
