Lots of Money
I leave, and some disgruntled old
IBM Intel-founding alumnus (ever heard of Moore’s law? yeah, that one) gives the school $600 million. Christ. What I love best, as usual, is David Baltimore’s spin on the deal: “[the money] will allow us to… maintain our greatness in the many areas in which we are preeminent…”. Conspiracy theories, anyone?
My prediction: after it’s all spent, we still won’t have decent acoustics in any of our auditoriums. Let’s hear it for the Caltech Wind Ensemble!
