Vinod Khosla has closed a new venture fund of $1.1 billion, one of biggest funds created this year. 

The firm, Kholsa Ventures, will allocate about half the investment capital in "clean tech" companies and the other half to tech, including mobile, reports Pui Wi Tam in the Wall Street Journal.

In the fall of 2008 on the MIT campus, we interviewed Kholsa about the investment opportunities in the "green" sector. We have republished that interview tonight.
