Sponsors Existing Sponsors: IBM provide dues and in-kind Intel stopped this year – re-evaluating their strategy as members of industry consortium projects. Discussions with new members: Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination is cultivating founding corporate sponsors – discussion with several in which CHMPR membership would be a component. Sony –continues to provide $50K of in-kind support per year, reluctant to sign member agreement. 9
