For some reason, this contest is set up to use Facebook. I don't use Facebook (and no, I won't start using it either), so thanks, but this contest is not for me. -- Torfinn Ingolfsen, Norway

Mr. Allen Houng, FaceBook? Really? If you were interested in the hobby market, FaceBook might be the right place. Sadly, my vision of combined FaceBook and FPGAs looks a lot like someone living in his mother's basement building geeky toys. I like to be professional with my FPGA work. RK.
Hi RK and Torfinn,

I'm sorry you feel that way about FaceBook. For us, it's a convenient
way to reach out to customers directly by sharing content such as
videos, pictures, news to everyone who is a part of our Terasic
FaceBook page. It's simply a platform for expression of interest and
the latest FPGA platform news, so you are right about that.

As for people who abstain from using FaceBook (which I can understand
completely), we are also constantly looking for ways to interact
directly with FPGA designers, such as through forums, our webpage,
etc.

As always, if you have any suggestions, we would always certainly
appreciate them.

Thanks,
Allen

How about LinkedIn? It has FPGA groups (but honestly, I don't read them). Altera has a good wiki - that one I do read, and IIRC, that's how I found TerAsic in the first place. Right here - comp.arch.fpga - I feel that it's OK to have a reasonable number of product announcements here. It looks to me like Brand-X monitors this board for advertising/customer relation benefit. (No problem with that - helping people so that they buy more product is how industry is supposed to work.) And don't you have a data base of customers on your web site? Shouldn't be too hard to add potential customers. Just a couple of thoughts, RK
