… but, then again, I doubt it. Note how Intel’s engineers stayed late and gave up holidays to perfect the next era of chip technology.

Government halls are empty at 5:01 (bring your bowling league), except for the few ‘crats who stay behind to steal laptops (try getting yours out of the HHS HQ).

A fascinating series on the years of work that went into Intel’s brilliant step forward.

My favorite line: “‘”No one person actually understands the whole thing,’ said Mistry, the engineer coordinating all the work.”

Ah, Mr. Mistry, that’s the **problem.** In the government, they **all** understand it. That’s why it works so well!

On the other hand … maybe ignorance is strength, after all.
