Inside Wisconsin: Cray's supercomputers help put Wisconsin technology on the world map by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Mon 19 Jul 2010 8:12pm Until now, if you heard the words “petaflop,” “teraflop” and “exaflop,” you might have thought they described something your dog left on the neighbor's lawn, your personal life and your career… in that order. Fortunately, that's wrong. They define computing operations at speeds so dizzying most people find it difficult to comprehend - and yet tho ... Read on »

Inside Wisconsin: Adding it up: The politics of job creation mathematics in Wisconsin by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Wed 17 Mar 2010 10:06pm The debate over how to create more jobs in Wisconsin will be virtually non-stop during the 2010 election year, as candidates for governor, the Legislature and other statewide offices trade ideas - and a few jabs - about what works. An opening salvo was fired recently when Republican candidate for governor Scott Walker promised to create 250,000 j ... Read on »
Inside Wisconsin: Wisconsin's 'race to the top' in education will always begin at home by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Tue 13 Apr 2010 8:28pm Wisconsin's bid for federal “race to the top” education grants got a mediocre C-minus from the reviewers at the U.S. Department of Education, who said the state's application fell short in some crucial ways. Most notably, the feds said, Wisconsin needed more robust plans for improving student achievement as well as the effectiveness of teachers. ... Read on »
Inside Wisconsin: Revival of Wisconsin Economic Summits provides timely forum for ideas by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Wed 09 Jun 2010 8:05pm The original Wisconsin Economic Summits served their purpose by fading away.

The final two summits felt more like an academic exercise, however, and ... Read on »
Inside Wisconsin: Defense-less no more: Wisconsin firms competing for, and winning, military contracts by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Mon 28 Jun 2010 8:06pm For decades, Wisconsin lagged most of the 50 states when it came to federal defense spending.

Inside Wisconsin: Transforming Wisconsin's economy will help meet 21st century challenges by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Mon 12 Jul 2010 8:07pm Wisconsin's economy has been made and remade over time.

None of that happened without innovation and risk. Ingenious and often entrepreneurial people made bo ... Read on »
Inside Wisconsin: Learning from other states about economic growth - as others learn from Wisconsin by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Mon 09 Aug 2010 8:24pm Much like Wisconsin, Kentucky is a “flyover state” to many business people on the East and West coasts. And, much like the Wisconsin economy, Kentucky is best known for a few iconic products: Bourbon, tobacco and horses are Kentucky trademarks; beer, cheese and Harley-Davidson motorcycles (for now) are familiar Wisconsin brands.

Inside Wisconsin: First clinical trial with embryonic stem cells based on Wisconsin research by Mike Klein Patient Expert Posted Mon 16 Aug 2010 9:05pm It's an enduring complaint about human embryonic stem cell research, often but not exclusively voiced by people opposed on moral grounds: If this research is so promising, why is it taking so long to produce treatments?
