On Tuesday, U.S. President Barack Obama named Craig Mundie, Microsoft’s chief research and strategy officer, to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology. You can read news stories about it here and here.

Craig is a visionary who will offer great strategic counsel to this body, and we congratulate both the President on his choice, and Craig on his recognition.

I think it’s important to note here that Craig will offer a keynote address on “A Vision of the Electric Industry’s Future,” on Wednesday June 24 during the annual meeting of the Edison Electric Institute this summer in San Francisco. We’ll be blogging more about this keynote in the future. – Jon Arnold
