Over the years – by a path I can’t explain – I’ve had the opportunity to become involved with MIT. It’s one of my favorite places for a whole lot of reasons. One aspect of my involvement is as a photographer for various events. The Communications Forum, the Futures of Entertainment, Media in Transition, Unbound and emTech are some of them and they’ve all be awesome. Bill Joy, one of the co-founders of Sun Microsystems and now a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, was one of the speakers at emTech 11. He’s heavily into energy now and had a great on-stage chat with Jason Pontin of the Technology Review. Here are some of my photos from that session. enJoy them. hahahahahahaha!
I love maudlin music. The sadder and more tragic the song the more I like it. There are few songs as sad as Blue-Eyed Boston Boy. It tells the story of two soldiers during the Civil War about to head into battle. The song’s namesake asks a comrade to be sure to send word to his mother and love should anything happen to him. Needless to say things go wrong. That’s a Spotify link up there so you can listen to the song if you’d like. It’s pretty sad. I’ve always thought it was a nice name though and the name was the inspiration for today’s set. Hopefully none of these blue-eyed Boston boys will suffer the fate of the song’s hero . . .
While not everyone it the set is necessarily a boy per se, they all have blue eyes and I’m pretty sure all of their pictures were taken in Boston proper.
