Andy Grove, man behind the chip giant - when i say behind I mean not for all the bad things people posted in the other thread. This guy did take Intel to the top. Anyway

Intel has a corporate policy for its employees to disagree with their managers and to pursue their own ideas. I wonder where that leads to. Doom 3 maybe.

Yeah he did. Wow. Talk about a major industry icon stepping down. I wonder what kind of retirement benefits that guy will be getting...

I read abt him in time magazine, when he was given the man of year title. Some interesting stuff abt him. He was the man, of chip industry.

I've met both Grove and Barrett. Grove is definetly the more visionary of the two. When he spoke of how the chip industry would go, it was because that's how he internally felt it should go and Intel went that direction. Barrett is more externally data driven so Intel goes more towards where marketing data says it should go. Maybe because he came to Intel as a Stanford Professor vs an entrepreneural start. I'm betting Barrett will become chairman of the board.

I'm actually looking forward to Otellini stepping into the CEO role. Though he comes from a marketing background (all previous CEO's were engineers) he still seems to present more of a vision
