Yaherkeley

It's old news now, but on Friday the University of California, Berkeley and Yahoo! announced that we (being the Industry Alliances Office at UC Berkeley) signed a collaboration agreement in July, and Yahoo! is setting up shop just off the Berkeley campus. The lab is formally called Yahoo! Research Labs - Berkeley, but I saw one student call it Yaherkeley on his blog, and I must say I like it. Press coverage has been wide ranging, and deserving of this great investment by Yahoo. Students, faculty & staff at Berkeley will have great new resources, Yahoo! will have great new energy, and it's nice to see it all came together.

Check out a few samples:
SF Chronicle
ABC News Australia
UC press release
San Francisco Business Times

Look next week for the Chronicle of Higher Education.
