A long life

At the age of 94 Intel co-founder Gordon Moore has died.

After working at Shockley Semiconductor and co-founding Fairchild Semiconductor, Gordon Moore and Bob Noyce co-founded Intel in 1968. He made the prediction, in 1965, that transistors on an integrated chip would double every year, which became known as Moore’s Law.

It’s a reminder that Silicon Valley and computer, software, networking and mobile type of technologies in one sense is getting old as one of the “founders” passes away after a long life. All while technology continues to develop as fast as ever, currently with generative AI changing perceptions of what is possible today and in the very near future.
