Digest #152

Here's the news you need to know.

Last night a friend asked me about local/regional trends. What's hot here right now? (Certainly not the weather.) My quick brain dump: AgTech (watch Salinas), Action Tech (electric skateboards, bikes, motorcycles), IoT/Wearables (smart beds, headsets), and Genomics (UCSC, offshoots). Did I miss anything?

We've got two Q&A articles this week. One with Alexander Wolf, the new dean of Baskin School of Engineering at UCSC, and the other with Nathan Dorn, founder and CEO of Food Origins. Inboard CEO, Ryan Evans, gives a video walk-through of their new M1 electric skateboard. If you haven't RSVP'd to this month's Santa Cruz New Tech Meetup, better hurry. And, of course, there's more.

Scroll down and start reading.
