Wish we’d had something like this when we were at Cal. Hope to see more resources for entrepreneurs as time goes on.

Re: “College launches new energy engineering major,”
Glad to see a technical perspective to public policy, as many of the policy wonks in this field are economists or lawyers. In Hawaii, where the penetration of renewables on small island grids is high, proper integration of these technologies is paramount.

Re: “Berkeley chosen as home for computer theory institute,”
Congratulations on winning the Simons grant. It is particularly gratifying to see UCB so facilitated and honored for its leadership on the theoretical side of engineering.
