A "black tie optional" event, for $200 per seat, you get dinner, cocktails, and to rub elbows with all the "EDA luminaries" like:
|Rajeev Madhavan||Joe Costello||Simon Segars||Aart de Geus|
|Wally Rhines||Jim Hogan||Penny Hersher||Raul Camposano|
|Bernie Aronson||Dean Drako||Ravi Subramanian||John Sanguinetti|
In addition, they'll be auctioning off some stuff that EDA start-up people will drool at like: - Lunch with Aart de Geus, CEO of Synopsys - Lunch with Lip-Bu Tan, CEO of Cadence - Lunch with Wally Rhines, CEO of Mentor Graphics - Dinner with Simon Segars, CEO of ARM - Lunch with Jim Hogan, private EDA investor - Lunch with Rich Redelfs, General Partner of Foundation Capital Plus stuff that ordinary "normal" people will love like: - Stay at Kathryn Kranen's Pacific Grove condo time share 2 nights plus Monterey Bay Aquarium passes - 4 night stay at Pat Pistilli's ski cabin in Breckenridge - 80-minute couple's Swedish massage at Fairmont Hotel - Skippered charter cruise on San Francisco Bay with Bob Gardner for up to 6 - 2 night stay at Cypress Hotel in Cupertino, CA Plus one thing I'd love to do, but I obviously live too far away in Boston to ever actually do is: - Two ViP pit crew passes for the Flying Lizard Motorsports American LeMans team race at Laguna Seca on May 4, 2014 hosted by eSilicon and Jack Harding. Get into a fire suit and headset and join Jack Harding in the pits with the Flying Lizard crew during the race at Laguna Seca. Also, I'm probably too fat for the fire suit and the headset probably won't fit over my fat head, either anyway. :( ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- Anyway, if you have some $$$ to spare and you want to do a good deed, join me on next Wednesday, Oct. 16th at 5:30 at the: Computer History Museum 1401 N Shoreline Blvd. Mountain View, CA 94043 Be sure to wear NICE clothes and make a reservation ahead of time here. I'm easy to spot. I'm that tall fat white guy who looks a bit out of place there who's NOT wearing a fancy suit and who drives a dented-then-home- patched 2001 Ford Tarus instead of a Porsche Carrera Cabriolet. :) - John Cooley DeepChip.com Holliston, MA P.S. And if you see Kathryn in your travels, please thank her for helping save EDA history. It could have been lost if she hadn't stepped up!
