  Cool on a number of levels.  Always good to collect more sample contracts, and NDAs are especially useful.
Lots of interesting details about these kinds of relationships.
And an interesting and seemingly desperate reaction from HP.  Item 5 is awfully strained.  Can't wait to see how the court handles 
the whole thing.  Although there is practically no non-compete for employment in California, there is a carve out for certain kinds 
of executive positions, sales relationships, etc.  However, his responsibilities haven't been announced and there is plenty he could 
do there in other ways, so hard to see how they have a solid case yet.

And Larry Ellison's response to this whole thing makes for good SiVal "silicon opera".
