"The real promise of what will happen here is the 21st Century extension of the academical village and what will be made possible by the technologies that are used, developed and explored in these places. The village won't simply exist
 

Summary: "The real promise of what will happen here is the 21st Century extension of the academical village and what will be
made possible by the technologies that are used, developed and explored in these places. The village won't simply exist
then in these buildings or on this campus, but across the state, across the nation and globe. We have only really begun to
understand the way in which these technologies can enhance human performance and accomplishment and how they
can improve the human condition."
