I just discovered the Berkeley Blog. There are over 300 contributors to this blog from a wide variety of academic areas. This blog reviews the presentations at an international conference in Ravello, Italy on biotechnology. It offers a delightful description of Ravello and it argues that biotechnology provides for advances in a wide variety of areas including, medicine, agriculture and new sources of energy. Its a great way to access the seminal ideas from one of the world's great universities.
