The most important individuals featured in the article were Jack Kilby and Bob Noyce. The Supreme Court judged them to be
co-inventors of the integrated circuit. Kilby was at Texas Instruments, Noyce was at Fairchild, a company he had cofounded.
He was later a cofounder with Gordon Moore of Intel.
Rostky's article, "The 30th Anniversary of the Integrated Circuit," appeared in the September 1988 issue of ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING
TIMES. The article was a bit longer than 37,000 words. It was based on interviews with 100 pioneers of the integrated circuit
(IC) revolution, and traced the evolution of the integrated circuit from technological, corporate business and personal perspectives.
Most of the early pioneers were known to the author, who conducted almost every interview.
