You know I have a special interest in EDA. One of the influential bloggers, John Cooley, on his DeepChip site gives a video crash course on a start-up ecosystem, how the companies are valued, why VCs invest or not. Clear and simple and sadly true, and funny video at the same time.
The title is provocative and unfair. Aart (de Geus) has not poisoned anything, but the industry he is in may be in trouble.
