The tech industry is in mourning as news spreads of the passing of Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel. Moore, who was 94 years old, passed away on Friday, leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered for generations to come.
Moore and his longtime colleague Robert Noyce founded Intel in 1968, and the company quickly became a driving force behind the technological revolution that has shaped our modern world. Moore’s contributions to the field of technology were immense, and his impact was felt far beyond the walls of Intel.
In addition to his work in technology, Moore was a dedicated philanthropist who focused his efforts on environmental conservation, science, and patient care improvements. Along with his wife Betty, he established the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in 2000, which has donated over $5.1 billion to charitable causes to date.
News of Moore’s passing has been met with an outpouring of grief and respect from the tech community. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, tweeted that Moore was “one of Silicon Valley’s founding fathers and a true visionary who helped pave the way for the technological revolution.”
Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, also tweeted his condolences, saying that Moore’s “vision inspired so many of us to pursue technology” and that he was an inspiration to him personally.
Intel’s official Twitter account posted a picture of Moore, accompanied by the words “Today, we lost a visionary. Gordon Moore, thank you for everything.”
Intel’s current CEO, Patrick P. Gelsinger, paid tribute to Moore’s legacy in a tweet, saying that Intel would “work relentlessly to exponentially outdo what he & Robert Noyce set out to do” and that Moore’s memory would live on.
Moore’s passing marks the end of an era in the tech industry, but his contributions and influence will be felt for many years to come. His visionary leadership and commitment to innovation have paved the way for countless technological advancements, and his philanthropic efforts have made a significant impact on the world beyond the realm of technology. The tech industry will always remember and honor the legacy of Gordon Moore.
