Tony Stark Was In My Graduating Class at MIT

Comments (3)

I was reading through Technology Review in the bathroom this morning and came across a quick piece on Iron Man that I missed during the movie.  Apparently Tony Stark was MIT Class of ’87.  Note the Brass Rat (not the same as the one I never wear.)

 

The article on the web goes on to mention my good friend John Underkoffler, who was the science and technology advisor for the movie (along with a number of other movies including Minority Report, The Hulk, and Aeon Flux.)  John is the founder / CTO of Oblong Industries, one of our Foundry Group investments.  Oblong will be unveiling itself later this month.

That’s me and John at my parents farm in Bells, Texas over 20 years ago.  He’s the real Tony Stark in my book.
