                        Dr. Juan-Antonio Carballo
                              Open Hardware

     Please join us the first week of May for a special presentation by
     Dr. Juan-Antonio Carballo, of IBM Venture Capital.

              "Spreading to the Edges: Growing a VC Ecosystem
                      in a Multi-layered Open Model"

     The open model for solutions development is quickly extending from
     software to other technology areas, such as hardware and services.
     Specifically, just as open source has spawned a revolution in the
     technical, business, and legal model for software, open hardware will
     provide a swell of collaborative innovation that will create entirely
     new markets and provide significant business benefits to the most
     creative, most reliable, and most adaptable semiconductor, EDA,
     System-On-Chip (SoC), systems, SW, and service houses. The open-source
     software stack with Linux as its cornerstone is increasingly and
     provably the preferred choice for newly venture-funded companies.
     Open hardware will also change the world of hardware venture
     investing. While the degree of openness and the business model may
     vary, hardware and semiconductor products have to be increasingly
     developed through a collaborative model that helps assemble IP blocks
     and services from multiple sources. In this talk he will describe the
     open standards model for hardware, chip, and tool innovation, and will
     argue and quantify how openness and a systematic method to value its
     associated IP will help the success of this environment, in that it
     will allow each member of the value chain - especially small
     VC-backed companies - to capture enough value to desire to
