Cyberposium day 3 Dean Kamen spoke about the Segway in what was probably the best and most peculiar keynote of the weekend. He kept the Segway secret for so long was not because of the hype, but because he didn't want people to think of it as a scooter. He genuinely hopes it will change the way cities are planned by easing the 1-10 mile commute, and so address problems of congestion and pollution. Kamen was disdainful towards the avarice and greed characteristic of MBAs, and urged students to focus their efforts on the big social problems.
