Water. It's important.

Water is relevant to everyone, especially now, here at home in the Central Valley. This year, as we think about how geeks can save the world, we turn our attention to water.

California is finally nearing the end of its worst drought in 1,200 years, and there's no better time to figure out how to solve future water issues than now.

Learn more about the water issue.

Remember this? It's one very good reason why we should invest in managing our natural resources effectively.
