About Joi Ito

Joi Ito is a Japanese activist, entrepreneur, and venture capitalist. From his days kickstarting Internet culture in Japan at Digital Garage, his restless curiosity led him to be an early-stage investor in Twitter, Six Apart, Wikia, Flickr, Last.fm, Kickstarter and other internet companies, and to serve on countless boards and advisory committees around digital culture and Internet freedom.

He now leads the MIT Media Lab.
