and we know it!
One common thought prevailed during the first meeting of Internet Institute founders. It was the feeling that the existing rules and dogmas were outdated and no longer functional. This thought is still very much present within our team today as 15 years ago. And this is the main driving force behind our decision to take a different approach: an anti-disciplinary approach.
The idea of the Institute follows in the footsteps of two organisations that have marked their time in history. The first one is the Bauhaus in Dessau – the German art school from the beginning of the last century (operated from 1919 to 1933). The second is the interdisciplinary research laboratory MIT Media Lab, the most creative department MIT founded in 1985. The ideas behind these two organisations guide and inspire us every day.
