The Intel Trinity: How Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove Built the World’s Most Important Company

Computer History Museum, 1401 Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View

On a warm September morning in 1957 seven key employees of Shockley Transistor of Mountain View, California decided to quit their jobs and strike out on their own, marking the beginning of what would become Silicon Valley. These men would go on to form Fairchild Semiconductor and revolutionize the way we work and live.

Drawing on unprecedented access to the Intel archives and on interviews and oral histories from its earliest days through the present, Malone reveals how each member of the founding Intel trio brought different things at different times. Noyce was the charismatic leader and the most respected high-tech figure of his generation. Gordon Moore set the law that accelerated the pace of innovation—the biennial doubling of computer chip performance. Andy Grove was the greatest and most ferocious businessman of his generation. Together, these three achieved Intel’s historic success.

Oakland - C.S. Soong Talk - "Who's in Charge Here?"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes KPFA host and political journalist C.S. Soong to the store to deliver a talk entitled “Who's in Charge Here? Reflections on Work, Alienation, and Human Agency” on Thursday, July 24th at 7pm.

Human beings make things in cooperation with others, but some of these things, like interest rates and commodity prices, appear to act (and fluctuate) independently of us, their creators. Drawing on interviews he has conducted with a number of political theorists as well as on his own research, C.S. Soong investigates this phenomenon of alienation and its impact on our sense of our own power to affect and change the status quo.

C.S. Soong is a co-founder and host of Against the Grain, a syndicated radio program about progressive and radical theory and activism based at KPFA in Berkeley. He holds degrees from Brown University and Cornell Law School, and he has done graduate work in philosophy at San Francisco State.

Tuesday, July 29, 7:00 p.m.

The Gurkha's Daughter

A number one bestseller in India and a shortlisted nomination for the Dylan Thomas Prize, The Gurkha’s Daughter is a distinctive debut from a rising star in South Asian literature. This collection of stories captures the textures and sounds of the Nepalese diaspora through eight intimate, nuanced portraits, taking us from the hillside city of Darjeeling, India to a tucked away Nepalese restaurant in New York City.

Prajwal Parajuly, the son of an Indian father and a Nepalese mother, divides his time between New York and Oxford, England, but disappears to Gangtok, his hometown in the Indian Himalayas, at every opportunity.

This event is co-sponsored by

whose goal is to provide education and a family environment for underprivileged Nepali kids at a children's home in Kathmandu.
