Great, but please don't stop here
This is an excellent selection of videos on invention in the 21st century. Sherry Turkle's "Inner History of Devices" is superb, as are most of the other videos in this series. My only disappointment is that the series seems to have stopped at the end of 2010. MIT remains the perfect place to extend this series, and I hope that they will continue it.
In addition, it would be helpful to have more text detail about the individual videos.
