REX to Intel and proud of the team

I left REX Computing about 1 year ago for reasons I choose not to disclose publically.  What I will say is that I am proud of the team to have brought the design through final tapeout, board development and now bring up.  I'm looking forward to the final power & performance numbers and, hopefully, an announcement about the software stack.  Here's Thomas (smart guy, 2013 Thiel fellow) presenting the hardware at Standford.  It's not the best quality and they were hit by Murphy's Law during the demo.  I'll switch up the video when a better presentation becomes available.

I am at Intel now (have been for 1 year).  The team develops verification testbench collateral to support the functional verification of their Xeon-line of server CPUs (Xeon, Xeon PHI, Xeon-D, etc.).  In a nutshell, my role is to manage a portion of a distributed "software" team (and virtual team) within a large organization that works on scrum-like sprints.  I am being challenged in different ways than previous - thus I am growing and grateful.
