The Bay Area is Talking about Calstuff

So apparently while I was working on my internship in DC, I missed a Bay Area bloggers convention hosted by KRON-4 news in San Francisco. About a month afterwards, KRON put together The Bay Area is Talking, a blog about the Bay Area that helps put together their news content and the Bay Area blogs. Calstuff is one of the blogs who they link to so, it’s nice to be put up with a bunch of other Bay Area residents. Interestingly enough, they linked to a comment stream on one of my Calstuff posts.

The folks at Cal Stuff are smarter than your average Bear…

So they turned us on to this new research center Yahoo is setting up in cooperation with Professor Mark Davis and the School of Information Systems.

But the real fun comes in the comments where people try to figure out if they should root for Google or Yahoo because of each’s connection with Bear and Cardinal


You guys do bring up something interesting about the nature of the Berkeley v. Stanfurd rivalry when it comes to the Internet. Berkeley made some of the technologies that went into making the Internet, but Stanford can proudly boast about its hand in helping to produce two of the crown business of the web, which is of much higher profile. A lot of the labs are doing great work, but there is no high profile story of a Larry and Sergei coming out of Berkeley.

Nice to know they’re reading more than just my posts.

East Bay Express Mentions Calstuff

From this article:

Least Sanctimonious Cal Student Blog

Ahhh, those crazy UC Berkeley kids with their “ideals” and “goals.” It used to be that if you were nowhere near Sproul Plaza at noon and kept out of earshot from a rally bullhorn, you could avoid the quixotic ramblings of the post-pubescent. Not so anymore. hanks to the proliferation of blogs, Cal students have flocked to the Internet — replacing free porn (well, almost) with two-bit opinions. The Berkeley bloggers range from left (Cal Patriot Watch) to right (Res Ipsa Loquitur). But in between is the Goldilocks standard of Berkeley blogs, CalStuff…The site is devoted to documenting student life and gossip and does a pretty damn good job of it.

Nice. I write for the blog (as you can see from my name being on the top of the banner).
