In the tech industry, it's not unusual to see a constant shift of talent. The latest newsworthy item here is that Glenn Hinton is rejoining Intel after three years of retirement. On his LinkedIn page, Hinton explains Pat Gelsinger coming back as CEO helped him to finalize his decision to rejoin Intel to work on "an exciting high performance CPU project."

Hinton previously worked at Intel for 35 years and was one of the big names behind the Nehalem architecture.
The original "Nehalem" CPU microarchitecture from 2008 was pivotal to Intel, as it laid the foundation for Intel's mainline server and client x86 processors for the following 12-odd years.
