Howard High-Intel's leading PR chief is retiring this Friday

Howard High, one of Intel's top PR leaders and communications strategists is retiring after 27 years. I've worked with Howard for nearly 20 years and to me, he has always represented the very best qualities of Intel and of his profession.

I'm glad Howard gets out to play :-)

Here is his note:

Hi Tom –
I don’t know if you have heard, but I wanted to tell you that after 27 years at Intel, I have decided to retire. My last day in the office will be this Friday. I want to play a bit and see what it is like to enter a week without 50 hours of my schedule pre-committed. I’ve enjoyed working with you over the years and wish you and Silicon Valley Watcher nothing but success in the future. Thank you for the kindness and the fairness you have given me and Intel over the years.
