The Rock of Silicon Valley

As part of my Computer Architecture and Organization class, we have to research important Milestones in Computing History.

Although I don't have time to go into all of the details of my presentation, here are the links I used to learn a little bit about Arthur Rock, the man behind Rock's Law.

  • The Harvard Business School Online Bulletin has an interesting article about Arthur Rock, that also includes a picture.
  • Visual Wikipedia has a good definition of Rock's Law here. Although unfortunately the video does not work.
  • cnet news also has an interesting, if not a little outdated, article about the semiconductor industry, which involves the application of Rock's Law.
