Intel to put Moore's Law on public display

Posted on Sunday, April 24 2005 @ 16:36:03 CEST by

Intel posted a reward on eBay this month to find a copy of the April 1965 issue of Electronics, in which Gordon Moore predicted that the complexity of computer chips would roughly double every two years.

The company promised a $10,000 award for a copy in excellent condition and an English engineer named David Clark found the copy under his floorboards and handed them over to Intel. He plans to use the money for his daughters' weddings. But the reward also caused some problems for librarians, although Intel said it would not accept library copies:
Intel's high-profile bounty, posted on the Web auction site eBay, sent librarians around the United States scrambling to lock-down copies before bounty hunters arrived.

"Somebody thought it was a cute idea," sniffed Stanford University librarian Karen Greig, who sent the equivalent of an all points bulletin to other librarians urging them to protect their copies. "The engineering library was not happy."
Intel said it will put the magazine on public display at the company's museum in Santa Clara, California headquarters. Intel might still buy a few more - one to act as a backup for the museum and one to give to Moore, the inventor of Moore's Law.
