Computer History Museum Party!

Computer History Museum Party!
by Daniel Nenni on 10-04-2013 at 3:00 pm

More details are now available for the EDA 50[SUP]th[/SUP] anniversary event on October 16[SUP]th[/SUP]. If you have not been to the museum lately this is a must see event as it is all new. Definitely check out the auction items! Just do not bid against me or it will get very expensive for one of us. I’m watching Storage Wars reruns so I will be ready to drop a big one on ya!

Join us at this sure-to-be unforgettable party hosted by the EDA Consortium as we recognize the EDA industry and its rich history. Special guests include industry luminaries and alumni who will join with present day members of our community to celebrate the past, look to the future, connect with old friends and make new ones. Festivities include a retrospective from Bill Joyner, entertainment and an auction to raise funds for the preservation of EDA history by the Computer History Museum.

This special black-tie optional evening will begin with a private opening of the Revolution Exhibit for guests and will follow with a reception, silent and live auctions and dinner in the Grand Hall of the Computer History Museum.
