Internet0 is an initiative at MIT, very like the Networked Objects class at ITP, but executed on a lower level of abstraction (i.e. all the engineeering is done from scratch, rather than using commercially available embedded net solutions).

Chuck Genco

From their mission statement:”ThinkCycle is an academic, non-profit initiative engaged in supporting distributed collaboration towards design challenges facing underserved communities and the environment. ThinkCycle seeks to create a culture of open source design innovation, with ongoing collaboration among individuals, communities and organizations around the world.”ThinkCycle provides a shared online space for designers, engineers, domain experts and stakeholders to discuss, exchange and construct ideas towards sustainable design solutions in critical problem domains.”Good stuff, well worth browsing through.
