"Bob came to me and said, ‘How about we start a new company? My first reaction was no, I like it here. Then a couple of months later he came back and said, ‘Now that I’m leaving, how would you like to start a new company?’ It put a whole different light on the thing."
— Gordon Moore, in a new PBS documentary “American Experience: Silicon Valley” talking about Robert Noyce who encouraged Moore to leave their first start up Fairchild Semiconductor to co-found Intel Corporation

The PBS documentary looks at how a group of young transistor tweakers turned what was once futile farmland into what today is a thriving technology innovation center of the world. Here’s a look at what Intel co-founder Gordon Moore says in the documentary, set to premiere February 5:

Silicon Valley Before the Startup

Intel’s Mr. Bluetooth (by IntelFreePress)

We got together Ericsson, Nokia, Toshiba and IBM. That probably represented 60 percent of both the cellphone and notebook markets at the time. The key was to define the goals of what we wanted to do. We formed a SIG, all agreeing that we wanted to build this universal, very low-cost, private, wireless cable.

The End of the Mainframe Era at NASAnasa.gov
This month marks the end of an era in NASA com­put­ing. Mar­shall Space Flight Cen­ter pow­ered down NASA’s last main­frame, the IBM Z9 Main­frame. For my mil­len­ni­al read­ers, I sup­pose that I should define what a main­frame is. Well, that’s…

Exif Thinking in Pictures, Scientific Computing’s brief history of graphics for general computers: 
"…the use of separate processors that are synchronized to a common system clock produced a composite result that could easily be attributed as magic."
One key role in this history was played by a legendary chip designer of the Intel 4004, which became the world’s first microprocessor in 1971.
