Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - He may be royalty, but Jordan’s King Abdullah II ibn Al Hussein knows a thing or two about entrepreneurship and technology, which he’ll be sharing Tuesday morning at a UC Berkeley forum on innovation in the Middle East , CBS SF reported.

King Abdullah will share the stage with Mike Cassidy from GoogleX’s Project Loon, a plan once thought to be just a parody, but later confirmed to be a real effort to bring the Internet to the world using balloon-based Internet stations floating in the stratosphere.

Other leaders speaking include Jordanian dignitaries and the CEOs of Twindom and Zaytouneh.
The event is 10:45 a.m. at Chevron Auditorium.
