In 1957, decades before Steve Jobs revolutionized the way we think and use computers, or Mark Zuckerberg transformed the meaning of social media, Physicist Robert Noyce was blazing a path for the Jobs and Zuckerbergs of the world. He was creating Silicon Valley.
Noyce and his co-workers decided to leave the Shockley Semiconductor Company to start their own transistor business. They created the microchip and -- by extension-- Silicon Valley.
