Exactly 10 years ago Jack Kilby passed and we’d like to celebrate his contributions to all things Science and beyond. Without Integrated Circuits, you wouldn’t be looking at this post and you certainly would not have heard nearly all modern music. 42 years after inventing the IC, he would be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. Four decades of perspective clearly revealed how very important this invention is. I wonder what invention we have today that would be as impactful 50 years from now?
File this one under hero.
