Gordon K. Teal

I just wanted to take a moment to point out that, without my wife’s grandfather, I probably wouldn’t be typing this and you wouldn’t be reading it. Not this way at least.

Okay, that’s a bit dramatic. But a) nobody else in my family (in-law or blood) that I’m aware of has their own Wikipedia page, and b) Gordon Teal’s work directly led to commercially viable transistors. He also put together, staffed, and ran the lab that produced the first integrated circuit. So, yeah. This here computer nerd is pleased to be associated with that kind of tech genius, however distantly.
