Honoring Gordon Moore

Gordon Moore died this March.

The co-founder of Intel Corporation, he was, in a sense, a futurist. He predicted that the number of components in each integrated circuit would double every year. He was not off by much.

He predicted that these chips would be used everywhere in modern life.

Importantly, “Moore’s Law” pushed science and business to create chips that were smaller and smaller. In short, his “prediction” spurred others to create a future.

Sometimes, as with Gordon Moore, what is perceived for the future becomes reality.
