Be nice! Robots have feelings too. :) If happened to get a pic with Al (which somehow I can't picture you doing, but nonetheless) we're giving away $100 Southwest Airlines giftcard to the best tweeted photo with Al. Just mention @AldecInc. Christina Toole, Aldec

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....

DAC is such a hard show to do a slideshow on! And yet, I feel as if I were there this year, talking to industry sources to exchange notes on the show floor!

@Frank- that theory is as plausible as any. I really couldn't grasp what he was so angry about. It also may have been that the scheduled appearance by 49er cheerleaders was cancelled.

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 :)
