I've long been interested in new ways to organize science and enable curiosity-driven discovery. Today, in partnership with @Stanford , @UCBerkeley , and @UCSF , we're excited to announce Arc Institute, a new undertaking in this vein: .

As a US business (and tech) community, I think we should be significantly clearer about our horror at, and opposition to, the atrocities being committed by the Chinese government against its own people.

I asked Tony Fadell about the iPod timeline for my fast project page. Summary: ?.

Becoming the preeminent locus of agglomeration for the world's plucky up-and-comers has been one of the US's greatest achievements and most potent advantages.
