    18 and counting

    To date we have an interest list of 18 companies:
    Brocade, Cisco, eBay, Facebook, HP, Genentech, Google, IBM, Intel, Juniper, NetApp, NVidia, Oracle, Qualcomm, Seagate, TSMC, VMware, Yahoo!

    We do not publish the individual players' name. However if you are an active player in the Norcal area, you can probably recognize many of the faces on the Facebook team pictures.
