I first met Gordon Moore in 2001, not long after I joined Intel. He’s a storyteller with a sweet, gentle windup but he packs a jaw-dropping wallop when you stop and think how each soundbite is part of the revolution that put the technology industry on the map just 40 or 50 years ago. Here are some photos taken with my iPhone 4 when he visited Intel in January 2012.
Interesting story today in Pando Daily:
In 1957, Gordon Moore and the “Traitorous Eight” formed Fairchild Semiconductor and created the basis of what would become Silicon Valley. But despite the undisputed importance of the microchip, Fairchild’s biggest contribution might have more to do with how the company was started than what it produced.
