100 years From Now – John Tintori

Dana @ 9:10 PM | Filed under: General

Name:

John Tintori

Age:

59 years old

Where are you from:

Detroit, Michigan

Occupation:

Professor at New York University

100 Years from now what do you want to be remembered for:

Okay, part of it is because I am a teacher:  I heard a quote from William Burroughs a long time ago that the object of a life…I think he said “Any man not working to make himself obsolete isn’t worth his own salt” and I’ve always believed in that.  And so, for me, everything I do is about trying to enable the next generation and the next group of people to do something better than me and forget about me.  So I would rather not be remembered a hundred years from now but I would have liked to have just been a cog in the machine.
