MIT beats the rush, names Dropbox CEO as 2013 commencement speaker

Colleges and universities typically don't announce commencement speakers until the spring, but the Massachusetts Institute of Technology got a jump on things this week by announcing that Dropbox CEO and 2005 MIT grad Drew Houston would be doing the honors in 2013.

LOOK BACK: 2012's Techiest Commencement Speakers 

GIVE IT AWAY: 12 Free Cloud Storage Options 

Houston, who co-founded and now leads the popular Web-based file transfer service, will be delivering his address at MIT's 147th commencement exercises on Friday, June 7.

He'll have a tough act to follow: Triple MIT alum Salman Khan of Khan Academy online education website fame delivered an excellent speech this past spring. (He also delivered one at Rice University in Houston.)

MIT President Rafael Reif said in a statement about the 2013 speaker: "Drew Houston has made cloud computing available to people everywhere. His experience offers a powerful example of how a young MIT graduate can give the world something truly useful."

Houston holds an BS in computer science and engineering from MIT. He began working on what would become Dropbox in2007 with Arash Ferdowsi, then an MIT undergraduate. According to MIT, Houston conceived of Dropbox on a bus trip from Boston to New York when his hopes of finishing some work during the long ride were dashed when he realized he had forgotten his USB drive at home.

Among this year's techiest commencement speakers: Google Chair Eric Schmidt, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman.

Bob Brown tracks network research in his Alpha Doggs blog and Facebook page, as well on Twitter and Google +.

Q&A of flaws in the handling of Stanford student May Zhou's death by certain police officers, which served a big role in a series of fascism crimes, in response to Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun's side of their argues at [iDOTdoubtDOTit/tag/sebastian-thrun/] (replace DOT with . to get the right address)
=====================
"Dr. Kelly Arthur of the Sonoma County coroner's office, is reported to have reviewed it and said she stood by her original finding that there were not any signs of trauma." --- that still would not gurantee a suicide conclusion, would it? where/when/how did those trauma come into being, then? Can Dr. Kelly Arthur explain? or would it be wiser for the officer who drew conclusion of suicide to make sure where/when/how did those trauma come into being before drawing conclusion of suicide?
-------------------
"Except Peter Cao, who asserts that Mengyao Zhou was murdered by or with the
help of Schmidt and Thrun, in order to intimidate him personally." --- Schmidt did threatened my life with the death of May Zhou for sake of Thrun during their fight with Stanford. I said they killed May Zhou to intimidate me and to terrorize Stanford; you omitted the serious part. My statement is far more reasonable than police can give, don't you agree?
--------------------
"... and an email that Zhou sent to her 16-year-old sister as "consistent with a goodbye note."
--- can we see such an email before we could believe it? How much good-bye is there in it? How to explain the fact that May Zhou had transferred money to pay off debt before her disappearance?
---------------------
"But then you can't expect someone killing themselves to make choices that appear rational to others. If it's not tasteless to speculate, perhaps she felt ashamed and wanted to hide herself."
--- Is that the way you describe death of an innocent girl as May Zhou is? Shame on you!
--- Would the officer in charge of May Zhou's case agree? How to get connect with such an officer? I have serious stuff to report

Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt/Gabriele Scheler/Angela Merkel/Ed Feigenbaum/Kaifu Lee, etc. had lost his credibility when he got involved into fascism crimes which had endangered human lives

There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives, Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in this fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them
Eric, as we can see, starting from Gabriele Scheler's atrocity case on Stanford campus back in 2004, many people, including Gabriele Scheler, Sebastian Thrun, you Eric Schmidt, Professor Ed Feigenbaum of Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science department, a big donor CCC of Stanford Computer Science department, and also Eric Schmidt's colleague in China Kaifu Lee, had made contributions to such fascism crimes which had cost human life of Stanford student May Zhou and crimes which had retaliated on victims and almost cost life of the victim as I am #
# # and someone who had provided legal coverage for your fascism crimes, including a powerful officer from Santa Clara DA Office, namely ZZZ (and after ZZZ, another officer YYY), and the officer VVV who's in charge of Gabriele Scheler's case and who had further collateralled with your side(suspect Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler's side) to conspire and curse victims( Stanford, May Zhou, me) in every possible way since 2006 till today; and maybe include the officer RRR who insist on May Zhou's death as a suicide or accident, even though I had clearly pointed out who's involved in May Zhou's murder case #

Google's era under Eric Schmidt had involved into multiple crimes in Stanford which is fascism by nature.

Google's Eric Schmidt had abused google resources to financially and politicially support a criminal suspect named Gabriele Scheler, along with a Stanford Computer Science faculty Sebastian Thrun, against ruling from Stanford and police authorities. During their fight with Stanford, Eric Schmidt's side had murdered an innocent Stanford student May Zhou in 2007 to threaten me and to terrorize Stanford. When they found I would not compromise a bit but actively tried to clarify the case, Eric Schmidt's side did plot a murder on me as well. The only reason they didn't make it a reality is becaue they were closely watched by police and they are afraid of leaving evidence (not becasuse they have any mercy on me as a human being, fascism by nature.) Eric Schmidt lost his CEO position because of his involvment into these crimes.

These accusations stand still which Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public. Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun had not paid for their crimes and they would have to.

Q&A about Fascism crimes on land of Palo Alto, CA in which Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel had involved and which were covered up by certain malicious officers with miscarriage of justice
===============
Ducatigirl,
No matter what kind of relation you have with Gabriele Scheler, or even if you are Gabriele Scheler herself, when you got the idea that:
>>>"He has also filed some false police reports, which PAPD has been kind enough not to prosecute him for, as in the case of Gabriele Schiele, a German student"
------ Don't believe in Officer VVV (same as ZZZ/YYY/RRR) who's in charge of Gabriele Scheler's accusations; VVV had already lost his/her credibility after being cowardice for so many years in light of my public challenges; don't believe in this officer, such an officer namely VVV is fooling around with all people involved, including with criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler, with Stanford, with Google, with Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel, and with victim as I am, etc.; Don't believe in anything VVV told you in name of judicial authorities; VVV had no credibility as an officer at all;
--- The crimes are not only coming from those fascists who had committed these crimes, but also from certain malicious officers, especially VVV, who's miscarriage of justice;

Also, other than Angela Merkel of Germany Chancellor, it seems there exists a power center of anti-authority in Stanford Computer Science department in this fascism circle to support unruly criminal behaviors of Sebastian Thrun's side

Someone from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes ((e.g. Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science Professor Emeritus Ed Feigenbaum, who had peeked my emails which police told me is crime; and a big donor CCC who manipulated the handling of this case with discriminative favor of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun in Stanford, and more, Thrun's student and colleagues had for sake of Thrun (possibly with guidance of someone as Feigenbaum?) falsely accused me at police which I believe is another set of crime ... professor teaches students to commit crime ... professor Ed Feigenbaum of Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science department is a crime supporter... details later # )) which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.

But would anyone from Stanford Computer Science department be willing to live under its shadow of such fascism crimes? or would anyone from this department give moral or spiritual support to such fascists who's misbehavior had caused cold-blooded killing of an innocent student from their own school of Stanford? Can anyone take place of these fascists to clarify their legal responsibilities and face legal consequences of their fascism crimes? Can anyone in this department answer the question: what's the motivation behind May Zhou's death?

For sake of their own fame, Stanford Computer Science department has the responsibility to go after those fascists to make them pay for their crimes

Sebastian Thrun, a Germany Scholar who had got Chancellor Angela Merkel's visit when she visited Stanford in 2010, had partialy left Stanford Computer Science department because he is in debt to Stanford people with his involvement into Stanford student May Zhou's death, he is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by powers from Sebastian Thrun's side for many years. Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public his involvement into such fascism crimes till today and I am still waiting to see why he dare not
I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel had monitored and invovled into Sebastian Thrun, Gabriele Scheler and Eric Schmidt's fight against ruling from authorities of Stanford and authorities of U.S. over their unruly criminal behaviors on campus of Stanford, and which ensued a series of crimes, including killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, all on land of America, etc.

Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, had provided political support for a series of fascism crimes which related to a cold-blooded killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou (a girl of U.S. citizen, Taiwan origin, MIT alumnus and Stanford Ph.D. candicate) as well as an unsuccssful plotted murder on me, all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ], in which an extremely irrational Germany lady named Gabriele Scheler had bitterly assaulted me. Chancellor Merkel might as well back up a coup in Stanford after she visited Stanford in 2010, though it was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. It is an interesting question of how much Chancellor Angela Merkel had invovled into such series of facsism crimes on land of America. I bet with the intervention of Germany power into these cases, such series of fascism crimes would never be clarified and such fascism crimes on land of America would never be concurred by U.S. Authorities. A very serious offending to the dignity and sovereignty of people of the United States as well as to the whole world of humanity

The problem with Gabriele Scheler's campus atrocity case [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ---http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence] is that Gabriele Scheler's side had recanted their testimony after Stanford police investigation in 2004; there are certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ mentioned above) who chose to stand on this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler's side and collateralled with Scheler to conspire victims(e.g. Stanford, May Zhou, me, and later on Google as well) in order to cover up their crimes while applying retaliation on victims, but Scheler's side dare never show me any of their evidence nor testimony (mine were post on the web) which they used to molest victims for years, and most of all, such malicious officers do not want to see this case from being clarified
But without clarification of this case, more and more retaliatory crimes were committed from Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler's side, which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, and I bet more would come if this case remain unclarified as it is now
So the point at this time is, who is this officer, namely VVV, in charge of Gabriele Scheler's accusation of sexual assault? (Is VVV from FBI?) and who had underhandedly made up numerous accustaions against me at authorities trying to intimidate me from clarifying such fascism criminal cases, and to terrorize others from ruling against those fascism criminals; VVV is miscarriage of justice and I hereby publicly challenge VVV to bring on details of Gabriele Scheler's accusations direct to me and clarify the case with confrontation at authorities.

===============
Ducatigirl,

Don't try to fool the public;

>>>You are obviously very upset.

You said it; as a victim of a series of fascism crimes, I am further victimized for many years by certain malicious officers in the judicial system ZZZ/YYY/VVV/RRR who chose to join this fascism circle; miscarriage of justice is going on
..........................

>>>how is an extremely intelligent and educated woman like Angela Merkel involved?

--- "extremely intelligent and educated" would not guarntee innocent in an extremely secret and extremely intelligently-plotted crime; I have clearly stated how Angela Merkel involved: during their fight with Stanford over Stanford ruling against criminal activities of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt;
..........................
>>>what does this have to do with online learning, anyway?
--- Such fascism crimes Sebastian Thrun involved into would not be tolerated anywhere in human society, including in this article; do you want to be taught by someone who had caused killing of an innocent student?
..........................
>>>he has harrassed Eric Scmidt, CEO of Google, claiming that he is trying to kill him and that he killed May Zhao in 2007
---Eric Schmidt, ex-CEO of Google, and powers behind Eric Schmidt, had for sake of Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler, systematically gone after every private relation I have in this world, and mobbed them to deceive me, condemn me, be hostile to me; Eric Schmidt/Sebastian Thrun/Ed Feigenbaum/Gabriele Scheler/Angela Merkel's side had almost taken my life; Yes, they had killed May Zhou in 2007, did I make it clear to the public? Why don't you ask them to deny it to the public?
..........................

>>>Peter, I promise you that Eric Schmidt does not even have a German accent.
--- Schmidt is a surname of German origin; Schmidt fought for German scholars Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler, and Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel tried to reinstall Eric Schmidt's power by setting up coups in Stanford and Google;
