Too Good to Just Tweet About by Mikey Yang '05

Hello blogosphere! Yes, I'm still alive and tweeting (@MikeyMIT)...

Hello blogosphere! Yes, I’m still alive and tweeting (@MikeyMIT). The reading and selection period has been intense as ever this year, but I promise as we approach mid-March, I hope to have some more blog updates.

Just saw this article/video on CNN of Prof. Cynthia Breazeal, who works at the Media Lab here at MIT. She gave a talk at the TEDWomen conference on personal robots – some pretty amazing stuff here! It’s so amazing, I couldn’t just tweet about it – I had to post it on the blog, too.

Maybe one day personal robots will deliver valentines to our doors… (that was my uber-clever way of saying “Happy Valentine’s Day!”)

    Aside from the general awesomeness of the video, I’m wondering if this qualifies for the “Shortest MIT Admissions Blog Post of the Year”award…

  4. Wow!

    I recently decided I wanted to study Artificial Intelligence at a post-secondary institution. This inspired me even more. I want to walk around the MIT Media Lab one day and just see people at work. Great post! Happy Valentines Day!

    Also, I followed you on Twitter. Hope to see more interesting updates such as this one smile
