  • [Hello and Welcome. My name is Bill Quirk]  I’m honored to be able to be in front of all of you today and introduce you to California, and most importantly, one of the most important and innovated locations in the world, Silicon Valley.
  • California’s connection to the Arabic world my even include its name. There is general agreement that Spanish author GarcíaOrdóñez de Montalvo formed the place name "California" from the Spanish word califa, from the Arabic: خليفةḫalīfah/khalīfah, the head of state in a Caliphate, a legacy of the Moorish empire within Spain from 757 to 1492. A word as ancient as the Quran. From the holy Quran 2:30When your Lord said to the angels, ‘I am putting a Calipha on earth,’ they said, ‘Will You place someone there who will cause corruption on it and shed blood, while we glorify You with Your praise and extol Your holiness?’ [God] answered, ‘Surely, I know that which you do not know.’ (Quran 2:30)

    11. 11. PATH TO SILICON VALLEY (LATE START) • 1951 transistor invented by William Shockley, John Bardeen, Walter Brattain • 1952 Ed Quirk (my dad) sets up first production line for transistors at Transistor Products Incorporated in Brighten MA (used germanium) • 1954 Texas Instruments produces silicon transistor • 1956 Shockley comes home to Palo Alto to take care of his mother and founds Shockley Semiconductors to produce transistors • Most Silicon Valley companies founded by engineers who Shockley recruited • Would we have Silicon Valley if Shockley’s mother had not needed care?
    12. 12. PATH TO SILICON VALLEY • 1957 “Traitorous Eight” leave Shockley Semiconductor because of his harsh management style • 1957 “Traitorous Eight” get funding from Sherman Fairchild to Found Fairchild Semiconductor • Late 1950s Shockley offers job to my Dad, Ed Quirk • Dad was excited that the inventor of the transistor wanted him, but told me Shockley was a failed business man, who he could not work for. • 1968 Fairchild’s Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore found Intel • 1969 Other Fairchild veterans found AMD
