ATI party had “talking heads”

THE RECENT ATI gig in Old California must have been quite an affair. A megageek writes to tell us that at the cocktail party held there, he was in conversation with some other geek about shaders and the like, when an attractive Berkeley student tipped up.

Apparently she, like many another, had been engaged by ATI’s PR to engage in social intercourse with the media. The megageek was annoyed, seeing as he was engrossed in social intercourse with another geek about shaders and the like.

The conversation turned to San Francisco and the subject of skiing came up, as well as chit chat about the town and that.

This event bears all the hallmarks of former, now current AMD spinner Chris Hook, from Canadaland. Former readers of the INQster will recall not only that Charlie Demerjian attended his wedding, but that when he was based in Europe he caused Mike Magee to fall off his stool at a Hampstead hostelry.

We haven’t heard from Chris since he found himself drafted back to North America. But it does sound as if he still has a flair for party PR, by all accounts.

  4. So, Chris was taken off the Hook, and blown away from the Old Continent’s ATI HQ, to be engaged in organizing broader social intercourses with media heads and corporate brains?

  6. Glad to see you’re still communicating. I’ve missed your incisive wit over at the Inq — they’re too serious without you.

    I eagerly await the next instalment of the laundry wars.

    Health, long life, good curry and joy, my friend.
