The MIT Factor

First off, I apologize for being a bit sparse with the posts lately. Things have been a little hectic, but I’m hoping to get back into writing more substantive entries (at least in my mind) beginning next week when I begin my road trip out west.

Until then, here’s an interesting article from the Guardian about the history of MIT, and what makes it a “unique” place.

I particularly enjoyed this classic photo:
A physics class at MIT in 1957







The caption reads: “MIT students at a physics class take measurements in 1957.” I like the color coordinated attire for the “measurement session.” Replace the physics tests (?) with some ad drawings, pens, a few stacks of paper, and a confident man with a glass of scotch watching from the background, and this could be right out of Mad Men.
