This past weekend, TAO attended the fourth annual SVIEF—Silicon Valley Technology Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum—which is an international conference designed to connect technologically inclined businesses in the US with their counterparts in the Asia-Pacific region. The focus of the event is on innovation in the high-tech industry, and both President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore have spoken at this event.

Secretary of Energy.
