Dylan, Thank you for the write up, my four days at DAC were a blur of activity and your article showed me how much I really missed.

I didn't go this year, even though it was close to me. It's not that I've lost interest in DAC, it's just that I'm trying to make the most out of the tools I _already_ have access to. Sometimes the focus has to be on getting things done, rather than getting new things....

Thanks for the writeup and the slide show Dylan, for the benefit of those of us who couldn't attend. Regarding the angry protester on slide 13, perhaps he was upset because his EDA startup and his "revolutionary new tool" still hasn't been bought out by one of the Big Three :)
