The Short Version: Established in 1899, MIT Technology Review is the world’s oldest technology magazine for tech professionals. The newsletter’s circulation reaches innovators, dreamers, disrupters, and industry leaders in 147+ countries. Over the years, many illustrious and knowledgeable voices, including Winston Churchill and Thomas Edison, among others, have shared their visions for the future within the magazine’s pages. Their informative articles inspire curious minds to discuss and brainstorm technological solutions to society’s challenges. At Technology Review events, like-minded people can have that conversion in person and network with professionals who work in a variety of technology-driven fields, including robotics, medicine, and software. At the annual EmTech conference, held on MIT’s campus, technological innovators assemble around a common interest in how technology can change our lives for the better. If you’re interested in meeting passionate, driven, and tech-savvy individuals, MIT Technology offers more than 200 events where socializing and learning go hand in hand.

Establishing common interests is priority one on a first date. You’re trying to build a bridge between you and your date using two simple words: “Me too.” So nothing is more discouraging than seeing your date’s eyes glaze over when you start talking about your profession or your passion.

For singles in the tech industry, this is an unavoidable dating dilemma. Not everyone has the chops to keep up with technical jargon and esoteric tangents. If you’re having a tough time meeting someone on your level, you could go to a tech event to seek out professionals who work in the same industry and share the same intellectual curiosity as you do.

MIT connects industry leaders in the technical world and promotes many stimulating conversations between tech experts on Technology Review. This long-running online magazine encourages in-person interactions and involvement by sponsoring hundreds of events for technological innovators worldwide. In the magazine and at the events, Technology Review highlights the latest developments, exciting possibilities, and influential figures in technology.
