8/10    Check this out. I went to Google Maps, typed in Pasadena then Animal Shelter.
        The first few items are "Caltech Housing", for students. I tried this for
        other cities like Berkeley and got real animal shelters. Is this some kind
        of lame geek joke from Caltech fraternity students?
        \_ Learn to format properly. Caltech doesn't really have fraternities,
           they have "houses" which are sort of like dorms, co-ops and frats
           all rolled into one. But yeah, this sounds like Tech humor. -Techer
           \_ I find it funny. I also find it sad that Berkeley students
              didn't do something as funny as this.
              \_ Berkeley students are too busy working 80 hour weeks for
                 Stanford business school students in the sandhill lane biz
                 \_ GOOD ONE. It's true. While Cal is so busy teaching geeky
                    engineers, The Furd is teaching its students how to
                    get connected to VCs, to have poise, to look and
                    talk like execs, and to rule over geeky engineers. Just
                    compare the # of successful Cal startups vs. Furd startups.
                    If I had to pick where my angel funds go to, it'd be the
                    Furds, hands down. Cal seriously needs to WAKE UP.
                    \_ word, been  saying that for years.  Cal students
                       are self selected from people who don't want to wake
                       up or who think "all that matters is the code".
                       Whereas really, without marketing or ops or biz dev
                       your startup goes to hell.  But it's not as romantic
                       or romanticised as the notion of a guy staying in the
                       labs, never sleeping, never bathing, rockstar coding
                       to get everything done.  Like CyberGod.
                    \_ Wait, isn't it because of Bush, or Reagan, or Pete
                       Wilson that Furd p0wns Cal?
                    \_ Oh, c'mon. Name a Stanford startup that was started
                       by *undergraduates*. Excite? Stanford teaches its
                       undergraduates to join startups, not found them.
                       \_ Name as many UCB startups as Furd startups
                          by *GRADUATES*. See, it doesn't matter.
                        \_ Loopt, midomi.
              \_ I don't think any of the Units has ever been flooded for a
                 party.  Ricketts for LYFE!  South Houses!
                 \_ Holy crap are there really two Scruves on the motd?
                    When did you go to Caltech, or was it just for the parties?
                    \_ ugcs doesn't have a motd?

2/4     UCB 19th in private donations for 2009 behind #1 Stanford and #9 UCLA. (LA Times)
        List of Top 20: (Wall Street Journal)
        \_ advice to UCB fundraiser committee: Ask not how you can
           get more donations. Ask why you are not getting donations.
        \_ why the fuck should i donate to a place that told me my undergrad

12/26   Mail is being retired, but will mail still be forwarded if we have
        a .forward? Also, _why_ is mail being retired?
        \_ one more yreason i only hire stanford grads from now on
           \_ Like you have any real hiring decision power.
        \_ don't recall seeing a discussion on this.  it would be nice if mail
           service remains.

10/5    any UC berkeley students that had successful startups
        in the past 15 years?
        \_ all the Cal grads I know with MBAs are in VC or finance.
           maybe they are just better at risk analysis... starting a company
           is not a great way to make money!
           \_ I'm a Cal grad with an MBA working in Finance (not High Finance).

9/23    I'm in grad school part time, and the professor I was trying to get
        to advise me just sent me "What you suggest (remote, part-time, topic
        formulation) doesn't fit my advising style..."  Does anyone know
        what "topic formulation" might mean in this context?  I come with
        funding from work, but the topics I can choose are somewhat limited.
        Could be a reference to that...
