About The Whine & Cheese Must-See List …

This week the infamous EDA Cooley (everyone calls him “Cooley” because no one can remember his first name) published the results of his survey where he asked the EDA vendors: What are you showcasing at DAC in San Francisco and what will you be giving away? He got 70 responses and, of course, 65 of them were the usual self-promoting EDA vendor infomercials.

Here instead, you’ll find an alternative list of companies who will also be strutting their stuff next week at DAC — just in case you’re tired of being told by others what’s what in EDA. Included on this Whine & Cheese Must-See List are the names of companies who couldn’t or wouldn’t do what it took to be included on the other list.

I’ve really been working hard to assemble this list, considering everything else I‘ve had going on, so I hope you’ll appreciate it. It includes companies and organizations well worth your time should you visit them in the Exhibition Hall next week at DAC. It’s a good list, although of course, even if a company’s not on this list, it doesn’t mean it’s not worth visiting next week at DAC. But at least with this list, you can be sure that no PR people were disappointed, overworked, or in any other way harmed in assembling the darn thing.
