"I like to learn. I don't want to be educated."

Most people know Joi Ito as a influential internet entrepreneur, speaker, blogger, and CEO. What fewer people know is that Ito never graduated from college or finished a formal education. He left computer science because he found learning about computers in college “stupid”; and found physics “too practical” for his taste. Instead Joi embarked on a trajectory governed by a near-obsessive interest in learning new thing by doing them. As we kick off the Drumbeat Festival, Joi shares his thoughts on where learning, freedom and the web are going.
