Students will wear red tape on their caps in solidarity with Leah Francis, #standwithleah. Visitors should do the same to show their support for survivors of campus sexual assault at Stanford.

Will Stanford be streaming this event? If not, why not?

Most folks have no interest in driving in all of that traffic, and dealing with parking and crowds. Streaming the event would allow folks who might be interested in listening to the speakers have that opportunity with adding to the chaos of these large gatherings.

Pay attention: It will be streamed! Please don't drive.

"A live webcast of the ceremony also will be available beginning Sunday at 9:30 a.m. at commencement.stanford.edu/webcast."

Well, I went and listened to Bill and Melinda. Think different from the Jobs address 9 years ago.
