Rick Borovoy
Understanding the ways technology can enhance social interactions has been the focus of Rick Borovoy's research for over a dozen years. At the MIT Media Lab, his research in folk computing and technology for face-to-face community building led to his creation of the first interactive name badges. Successful demonstrations of these badges produced so much interest that, together with his partner, George Eberstadt, Borovoy founded nTAG Interactive to bring his work to a broader audience.

Borovoy's vision began to develop during his five years at Apple Computer in the Classrooms of Tomorrow project where he studied the way wireless applications can facilitate kids' learning through the creation of distributed communities.

Borovoy holds a Ph.D. in Media Arts and Sciences from MIT and a B.A. in Computer Science from Harvard.
