9 thoughts on “Stanford versus Berkeley”

  1. And why did you decide to forget SUN – Stanford University Networks ? They have very cool technologies, even though the company stock is lying low, who cares ?

  2. Go Bears!! We care more about the technology and its uses for the public than making money! unlike the ‘other’ school which spends thousands of dollars in making their ‘palm drive’ look soo cool! 🙂

  3. Don’t forget the seminal work of David Patterson at Berkeley that led to RISC processing and more importantly the concept of RAID on which the current mega billion dollar storage industry is based that allows it buy up companies like VmWare ( which by the way is a Stanford product) with the stroke of a signature and not even sweat about it.

  4. Don’t forget Berkeley SPICE from the EECS program. This standard circuit design/simulation software is widely used in academia and industry. Many commercial products are based on this standard and it is used to design much of the great analog circuitry that powers technology.

  5. Bed rock of the Internet? Ever heard of TCP/IP or Vint Cerf?
    After developing the Internet protocols as an assistant professor at Stanford, Cerf has remained one of the Internet¹s most vigorous and articulate champions-first as a diplomat in establishing TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) as the common language of networking, and more recently as a leader for the non-profit Internet Society and as a technical guru for a telecommunications company building the architecture for the Internet’s next generation.
