PCI-SIG Board Election Time that is – please vote before Tuesday at noon Pacific!
Many of you know me well enough to realize I hate this part of the PCI-SIG Board “job” but if I don’t wear this hat around, I won’t have the PCI-SIG “hat” to wear representing you. So I’m once again out drumming up votes in the election. Did I mention that voting ends tomorrow, Tuesday May 15th? So don’t delay, click on this voting link and either cast your vote (if eligible) or contact your company’s voting rep and ask them to vote.
As a quick recap:
Turnout is historically very low, and I’ve made some rash offers (involving my dancing on stage if turnout exceeded 50%) in the past to try and increase participation, but I’ll keep it short this year…
Please vote! Specifically, please vote for me, but at least vote!
P.S. Stay tuned for a report on last week’s PCI-SIG European Developers Conference.
I’ve been involved in the development of PCI chips dating back to the NCR 53C810 and pre-1.0 versions of the PCI spec so have definitely lived the evolution of PCI Express and PCI since the very beginning! Over the years I have worked on variations of PCI, eventually moving on to architecting and leading the development of the PCI Express and PCI-X interface cores used in LSI’s line of storage RAID controller chips. For the last ten plus years I've also had the honor of serving on the PCI-SIG Board of Directors and holding a variety of officer positions. I am still involved in PCI-SIG workgroups and I present at many PCI-SIG events around the world. Back before the dawn of PCI, I received my B.S.E.E. from Rice University, and hold over two dozen U.S. Patents, many of which relate to PCI technology.
