Jack Kilby

Jack Kilby, co-inventor of the integrated circuit, died last week after an amazing life.

Kilby and Noyce independently invented the IC, with Kilby's pioneering work ultimately recognized with a Nobel Prize in 2000.

For anyone in the technology industry, I strongly suggest reading The Chip.

The book is a wonderful account of the two men, their inventions, and the IC's impact on the world.
