A well-known member of the MIT Media Lab plans to resign over revelations that the research center and its top leader took money from Jeffrey Epstein, the deceased financier who was accused of trafficking in underage girls.
Ethan Zuckerman, director of the lab’s Center for Civic Media, told the Globe late Tuesday, “I’m working with my students and staff to move my work out of the Media Lab. That might involve moving to another part of MIT. It might mean moving elsewhere.”
Zuckerman was among the chief organizers of the Media Lab’s annual Disobedience Award, which recognizes risk-takers and rabble-rousers and last year honored #MeToo activists. In a note to the past award winners, Zuckerman said he was “heartbroken” about his decision.
