Jeff Ellenbogen quote
This year’s Constructing Modern Knowledge Big Night in the City, features an exciting reception at the MIT Media Lab, before you head out and explore the Boston area. Our institute dinner will once again be at an all-you-can-eat Brazilian churrascaria. Participants also receive a collection of open-ended creativity software to use and keep.

While the rest of the country is sweltering from the summer heat, Manchester (known to the locals as “Manch Vegas”), NH is cool, quaint and filled with great restaurants.
