PSoC Borrows from "The Hurt Locker"
As many of you are aware, The Hurt Locker won the Oscar for Best Picture this year. You may not be aware of producer Nicolas Chartier's email to the Academy members begging for them to vote for The Hurt Locker over the evil corporate empire that is Avatar. Below is a copy of his email.
I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to write you and say I hope you liked Hurt Locker and if you did and want us to win, please tell (name deleted) and your friends who vote for the Oscars, tell actors, directors, crew members, art directors, special effects people, if everyone tells one or two of their friends, we will win and not a $500M film, we need independent movies to win like the movies you and I do, so if you believe The Hurt Locker is the best movie of 2010, help us! I'm sure you know plenty of people you've worked with who are academy members whether a publicist, a writer, a sound engineer, please take 5 minutes and contact them. Please call one or two persons, everything will help!

So, it's with great self pride, that I petition all of you to vote for PSoC 3, PSoC 5 and PSoC Creator in the EDN Innovation Awards. Tell your friends, co-workers, bosses, significant others, etc. to vote. You can vote here: www.edn.com/innovation20 (voting ends March 19th, so go vote now, before you forget). PSoC is like The Hurt Locker for this EDN award. We are the smaller company competing against the titans in the microcontroller business. But I firmly believe that PSoC, and the design methodology that PSoC uses, is superior.
In the end, Nicolas Chartier was banned from attending the Oscars. And with any luck, I might be banned from having to attend the EDN awards too.
