The latest Silicon Valley development revolves around our newest Venture Capitalist-- Vice President Al Gore. Earlier this week, Kleiner Perkins announced that Al Gore has joined the VC firm as their newest partner. Gore will focus on new clean-technology investments, continuing Kleiner's new investments in green technology.
I guess you could see this coming. When Gore accepted his Nobel Peace Prize, he accepted in downtown Palo Alto. As a Palo Alto resident, I remember the crowds lining up to see the Vice President. School was out that day (for other reasons), and many students even ventured downtown to see Mr. Green.
