description

QuickRead presents a summary of "Moore's Law" by Arnold Thackray, David Brock, and Rachel Jones:

Learn about Gordon Moore, the brain behind Moore's Law, and how he revolutionized the electronics and computing industry.

When you think of top entrepreneurs in the tech industry, who do you think of? Perhaps your mind goes to Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, or Bill Gates. While these men have certainly been influential in creating some of the world's most revolutionary products and ideas, there is just one person that has been at the center of it all. That person is a quiet Californian named Gordon Moore. A co-founder of Fairchild and Intel, Moore was at the forefront of two of the most influential companies. As a young chemist, Moore had the insight to predict that, one day, electronics would be profoundly cheap and immensely powerful, even doubling in power and then doubling again at a particular rate. This is now recognized as "Moore's Law" which has revolutionized the tech industry. For instance, remember when computers were once enormous and clunky with limited capabilities? Today, computers are everywhere, including inside the human body and even on the surface of Mars. The era we live in today is all, in part, due to Gordon Moore's work in Silicon Valley and the transformative technologies that are developed there. Throughout Moore's Law, you'll learn how a childhood in making bombs led to a career in chemistry as well as the ins and outs of the technology boom that started it all in the 1950s.
