Great Site to Check Out

Check out this site, code.org, where they are campaigning to help kids learn to code! I think this is something kids definitely need to be learning in school (and I wouldn’t mind learning myself!)

While I was at Berkeley, we discussed the importance of data in the digital age.

Great tips!
