Can innovators build a future that’s both disruptive and just?

Ethan Zuckerman

D&S advisor Ethan Zuckerman gives a speech on the MIT Media Lab’s 30th anniversary praising the numerous innovations that have come from the lab but puts forth the important question of whether or not innovators can build products that will be both disruptive and just.

“There are lots of systems in the world today that are broken and could use some disrupting. But it’s important to ask who benefits and who gets hurt when these systems are disrupted.”
