Federico Faggin on his early work

A YouTube presentation: Federico Faggin at UC Berkeley 2-19-2014 “Microelectronics & Microprocessors: The Early Years” (1:21)

This is one of those guys at the very top of the ‘been there, built it’ pyramid telling his story. He was the right engineer in the right place at the right time and the result was the modern microcomputer and solid state fabrication of electronic circuits.

In answering a question after the presentation, he gets into his idea of the conscious and identity and gestalt. Watch the video and get a glimpse of the person.
