Interest: The deal with IBM and Intel is expected to create 2,500 jobs across the Hudson Valley and west along the Thruway in Utica and Canandaigua, with the latter getting about 300 of the total. What has created optimism among business groups is that the nanotechnology research, which in this case aims to develop faster and cheaper computer chips, may also spur the manufacturing of the chips in New York.

Interest: The former head of Google China and founder of a start-up incubator Innovation Works said by phone that Chinese schools focus too much on memorization and don't encourage critical thinking. "It's not that Chinese are not smart or don't have the potential. Look at Jerry Yang of Yahoo Inc. and Steve Chen of YouTube," he said, referring to the two Internet entrepreneurs who were both born in Taiwan and migrated to the U.S. at young ages.
