First post of the year is a guest question from Shashank Srikant! yay!

Before we get on with the question,please remember that  BB Live Quiz is coming up on 3rd January at 9:30 PM IST.  Hope you guys are ready!

Now, the question.

How does the world, and especially the person in Pic 2 know the gentlemen in Pic 1 as?

1. 3345804f45931f5e013359149e0f2c8c 2. 9261f70088125d319e74e07834e91ffe

Hint: 2 is a rather famous guy. Without his work, we would probably not have computers today.

    William Shockley called them the “Traitorous Eight”

    (giveaway fairchild logo in background, and very famous picture of the eight)

  9. calvin

    1. The eight ppl(Fairchildren, Traitorous Eight) who left working for Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory and founded Fairchild Semiconductors.
    2. William Shockley

    Its rumored that Shockley called them as Traitorous Eight which was denied by his wife.

    1. Traitorous Eight/Fairchild Eight/Shockley Eight
    2. William Shockley

    The Traitorous Eight, as they would become known, are eight men who left Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory to form Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957. More neutral terms include the “Fairchild Eight” and the “Shockley Eight.” They have sometimes been called “Fairchildren,” although this term has been also used to refer either to Fairchild alumni or to its spinoff companies.

    The Eight are Julius Blank, Victor Grinich, Jean Hoerni, Eugene Kleiner, Jay Last, Gordon Moore, Robert Noyce and Sheldon Roberts.

    Traitorous Eight

    William Shockley


  12. i believe “Traitorous Eight” is the answer you are looking for ….. gentlemen in first pic formed founded Fairchild semiconductor and quitting from Shockley semiconductors founded by william shockley(pic 2)


  13. panrod

    Traitorous Eight/ Fairchild Eight (1) left William Shockley’s (2) company to form Fairchild semi.

    Fairchildren aka The Traitorous Eight, as they would become known, are eight men who left Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory to form Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957. More neutral terms include the “Fairchild Eight” and the “Shockley Eight.

    Pic 2 is the transistor guy : shockley


  17. Traitorous Eight


  18. Neeraj

    1. Founders of Fairchild Semiconductors
    2. Will Schockley

    The 8, who left Schockley\’s company (Schockley s/c lab) because Schockley\’s micromanagerial style did not go down well with them. They left to form Firchild s/c and were known as the \’Traitorous Eight\’ or \’Schockley Eight\’ or \’Fairchild Eight\’.

    P.S : great Title+hint :)

    The Traitorous Eight of the Fairchild Semiconductor Company and William Shockley.


  20. degenker

    pic 1 is that of traitorous eight group who fonded fairchild semiconductor and pic 2 is dat of wlliam shockley who invntd transistor


  21. The guys on the left are founders of AMD from fairchild semi-conducters…. And the person on right is Gordon Moore, i guess..


  22. The traitorous eight

    2 is William Shockley who co-invented the transistor!

    The Traitorous Eightpic (pic 1), as they would become known, are eight men who left Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory to form Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957. More neutral terms include the “Fairchild Eight” and the “Shockley Eight.” 2nd pic is of william shockley


  24. p vs np

    I am rather known by my Boiledbeans handle (p vs np) in this part of our Middle Earth :P

    Btw, the answer:
    1. The traitorous Eight of Fairchild Semiconductors
    2. William Shockley
