PS: can't agree more with your comment that a major obstacle to US innovation is foreign STEM graduates being forced to leave the country. The problem is so acute that we're going to launch a ship in international waters 30 minutes from the California coast near Silicon Valley, to host these founders without US work visa restrictions.
All you startups out there that are strapped for cash should enter the Eureka Park Challenge. Not only do you get a free booth at CES 2013, but even if you don't win, your entry may be highly publicized at CEA Line Shows next month in New York City! Entry is free at WizeHive.com/contest and even looks kind of fun!
