Thanks for the shout-out to Phil Kaufman, my older brother. We just observed the 20th anniversary of his death and I'm so pleased that people remember his contributions beyond just his name on an award. I agree that there isn't enough about his history associated with that award. Maybe you can do something about that. Mimi Kaufman Clemons

EDA really took off when affordable personal workstations appeared on the scene. Perhaps the founder(s) of Daisy Systems should be mentioned, among them Aryeh Feingold. Have a Guinness on me, Max! (My personal favorite is the Erdinger Dunkles Weissbier from Munich).
