Did you see the news article about the Berkeley student who automated his dorm room? It seems the powers-that-be at the school are going to investigate to see if he broke any rules, and that’s about all they are saying. Hey, don’t be stuffy !! You are BERKELEY!! What happened to the atmosphere of creativity, tolerance, being unique and trend setting?
What should they have done? They should have congratulated him, brought in a science / engineering prof to critique it, given suggestions on how it could have been done a bit better, then suggested that it might be a good idea to have had an expert consulting with him “just to be sure” that everything was safe for the dorm and appropriate (within reason). Maybe he should get class credit, depending on his major.
Bah. A stuffy Berkeley. What have we come to.
