Birthday Google Doodle for Robert Noyce

For December 12, Robert Noyce's birthday, Google decided to honor the inventor of the integrated circuit with a Google doodle of his own. Since it's already December 12 in China, it's already showing there, and my friend Barnas sent me a sneak peek:

As Barnas points out, this is a pretty advanced integrated circuit. I like it, and I like the subtlety of the Google logo.

I wish my father were here to see it, but even without that, this is a tribute that means a lot to me.

Addendum: Here is a very sweet note that came to the Noyce Foundation from Turkey:

Very wonderful and cool. I didn't realize you came from early electronic stock. I, too, was early in the circuits game, but only as an observer.

Wonderful tribute to a deserving person, I must say!
