Wy do we have land sitting empty in Massachusetts’ center of innovation while all of the entrepreneurs are being forced out around it by ever increasing rents? Why not use it instead for providing:
1. Education, resources and community to keep innovation in Kendall Square. We could build or sponsor a community makerspace a place where people can share tools and ideas, make connections, and build electronics, robotics, and more. Think: innovation-themed community center where anyone can come to learn, build and collaborate with others in a culture of invention and creation. There’s no reason that Boston, home to MIT and over 100 robotics companies, shouldn’t be a leader in robotics and the emerging hardware revolution.
2. Affordable housing to keep students here after graduation.
