The best reference is from someone you know, someone whose opinion you value.
I have therefore listed 49 references to aid you in finding such an individual.
Silicon Valley is a small world; you probably know someone on this list.
I regret that many of the phone numbers are old.  You may know where to call.
I believe that the phone numbers in BOLD are still valid.
