Thanks to everyone who attended our 4th Annual Green Tie Gala, as well as the launch of our Cleantech Innovations New England partnership. There’s a lot in here on Beacon Power that’s worth looking, including a post by Peter Rothstein and comments from CEO Bill Capp. And Rob Day has a nice post on “How I’ve Failed” that is worth your time.
