Marvin Minsky’s Marvelous Meat Machine
Steven Levy

A great tribute, thank you Steven. You probably remember a delightful Minsky moment we shared. My daughter was 4 months old and we were visiting the MIT Media Lab when we ran into Minsky in a corridor. He ignored us and started playing with Rebecca. She followed his actions, mimicking his movements. He asked how old she was and when I told him he said, “She’s a prodigy.” Talk about proud. And in many ways, he’s been absolutely right.
