Did you know? 25 Random Things About Intel

If you’re on Facebook, you’ve surely been hit up by at least a friend or two to fill out your list of 25 random things about you. It reminds me of the chain letters I used to get as a kid where you get the letter from a friend, rewrite it and then send to 5 of your friends. And so it continues. I never did get any of those prizes promised in the chain letters.

Well, Intel has jumped on the 25 Random Things bandwagon and I think you’ll find some surprises in here. Other things may not be a big surprise, especially if you’re at all familiar with the Intel culture. Regardless, it’s a fun read. Here’s a little preview of what you’ll find, but its best to visit the Intel Facebook page to see the whole list.

– Thanks to Moore’s Law, PCs based on my processors will continue to be energy-efficient yet powerful enough to handle all of the video, photos and information sharing that could literally double each year moving forward, as “Zuckerberg’s law” predicts.

– My manufacturing employees who spend their days inside the “fab” – or factory – refer to the rest of my employees as “carpet-dwellers.” (http://www.intel.com/pressroom/archive/releases/20090210corp.htm)

– At my company, tick-tock does not refer to a clock and a foil isn’t the stuff found in the kitchen to cover up food.

– I am a TV celebrity in my own right – having made appearances in David Letterman’s Top 10 list, Jeopardy, the Today Show, the Late Show with Conan O’Brien and the Great Race, among others.

  1. Intel is such a diverse company with a rich and long history. The list reflects this. In particular, I liked #18. It references the quote that our founders gave the San Jose Mercury News over 40 years ago, saying they were founding Intel to “regain the satisfaction of research and development in a small and growing company.” Over 40 years later and 85k employees, we still retain this spirit of innovation and creativity.
