The University of Waterloo received a huge “Google dividend” yesterday when David Cheriton, one of the search engine giant’s early investors, donated $25-million to the school’s well-respected computer science department. Mr. Cheriton estimates the return on his US$200,000 investment in Google at about 5,000%. CS School renamed to David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. It’s really exicting to see and imagine all potential opportunities UW can do with this donation. As an UW/CS alumni, I thank you, Mr. Cheriton!
