Craig and Frederico eating healthy

Craig Johnson of Venture Law was in for lunch recently with a man who is right up there as one of the most important scientists of the century, Frederico Faggin.

Mr. Faggin co-invented the microprocessor. When I asked him if he still had the patent he smiled modestly and admitted that he did. It seems to me that the Italians are not only noted as being a people who have more style than they are entitled to but have produced a disproportionate share of scientists. DaVinci, Fermi, Marconi and Faggin for instance.
