I’m revising some of my “about” and “biography” pages at the moment, and looking for inspiration. The opening statement to the MIT Media Lab’s “overview” document is just sublime:
The Media Lab is a place where the future is lived, not imagined. Our domain is applying unorthodox research approaches for envisioning the impact of emerging technologies on everyday life.
Wow! That’s a seriously well-crafted piece of writing, and something to aspire to on every level.
