On today’s Peninsula Report radio show, Jessica Parks shared the story of the 200-year-old sycamore tree, Sentinel, that signaled settlers had finally reached San Jose. The city lost the tree to disease in 2000, but residents were able to save a few of the branches in hopes of replanting a clone of the tree one day. As Parks reported, San Jose did just that last month.
David Ruiz gave a report from last week’s State of the Valley conference in San Jose. He discussed how investment in clean tech is on the rise in Silicon Valley, but experts say there is more that must be done for the region to remain on the cutting edge.
And Stephanie Soderborg detailed news from Palo Alto’s luxury car maker Tesla, which announced better-than-expected annual earnings this week and unveiled the new Model X to mixed public review.
