SDForum Visionary Awards – What an evening!

Yesterday I attended the SDForum Visionary Awards celebration (happens every year)

Every time I attend this event, I come back charged  up and inspired.  The event was held at the home of Heidi Roizen and David Mohler.

This year’s award recipients were:
1. Carol Bartz, CEO of Autodesk (intro: Scott McNealy)
2. Bill Draper, Partner at Draper Richards (intro: Ann Winblad)
3. Carly Fiorina, former CEO of HP (intro: Larry Sonsini)
4. Ray Ozzie, CTO of Microsoft (intro: Bill Gates and Esther Dyson)

It was great to hear all of these people talk passionately about why they did what they did and about the Valley. Kudos to SDForum team
(especially Laura Merling) for putting together this phenomenal show. I
think these are the kinds of things that make the valley a special
place to live.
