    Ten years in Las Vegas

    - 29 January 2014

    Hi - congratulations on all your work so far. I know how hard it can be to get a start up running.

    We have a few things in common. I grew up in Brighton, and lived in Watertown for about 6 years after school (I shared a house with friends on Galen street, which runs between Watertown Square and Newton Corner). I worked over in Cambridge at an MIT spinoff, Thinking Machines, over on First Street. You may have seen one of our machines over at MIT - there was one in the AI lab, and another in the media lab. They were big black boxes with lots of red LEDs.

    After Thinking Machines ended, I started doing contract work. I'm a hardware guy, so I did board design, as well as FPGA and ASIC design. I'd say most of what I have done in the past 15 years has been ASIC design, the most recent being a 0.22u design. I work out of my house in Henderson, for a client in Fort Collins CO. I only go up there once a quarter. It's a nice arrangement.

    It would be great if I could stop by and see your operation. I'm just starting to get into robotics, and it looks like a lot of fun.

    Let me know if we can work out a visit. Easiest way to get me is cell, 415-515-8188.

    Best of luck to you

    John
