Andy Grove to receive lifetime achievement award

March 23rd, 2009

Certainly one of the greatest minds of our time and a man that changed the face of computing forever.  He’s legendary in the industry and around the halls of Intel.  We all have our favorite Andy stories, either personally witnessed or passed on from those who grew up in the company under his leadership.  My summer intern exhibited our value of ‘risk taking’ last year and emailed Andy directly (yes, he still has a valid intel.com email address).  When he told me I wondered if that was a good idea – turns out it was – he was quick to respond and gave him a classic Andy Grove pearl of wisdom.  I’m sure it made his whole internship….

Mr Grove will receive the award from the National Inventors Hall of Fame (NIHFF), established in 1973 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The NIHFF honors inventors who contributions have enabled human, social, and economic progress.
