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

I remember using a mainframe for rudimentary EDA tasks ... what a pain. I agree that things like Apollo workstations (remember them?) really changed the EDA landscape. Truth to tell I'm not a huge Guinness fan, but I love English Bitter and German "Brown" beer -- I've quaffed a few in the beer gardens at Munich (I was also fortunate enough to attend an October Fest ... but that must be 25 years ago or more now ... where does the time go?)

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).

Maybe I'll be able to get my picture taken with the man who got his picture taken with the President...
