Jack St. Clair Kilby

  1. I'm not big on recycling bits but a story I've just seen on Slashdot is an
    exception to the rule. Jack St. Clair Kilby, the man who invented the
    integrated circuit, passed away on June 20th. There aren't many people who
    can boast of starting a (multi) trillion dollar industry and it all started
    when he didn't take a vacation

    Quick note that Robert Noyce (who started Intel with Gordon Moore) also
    invented the integrated circuit - at roughly the same time that Jack
    Kilby did.
