asciilifeform: !#s lilienfeld
asciilifeform: will find, e.g., lilienfeld's transistor.
asciilifeform: solid state gyros were implicit in lilienfeld's (yes, 20s!) transistor.
asciilifeform: lulzy, very very lilienfeld.
asciilifeform: (for n00bz, lilienfeld invented transistor in the '20s)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: neato! turns out otp has its very own lilienfeld
asciilifeform: e.g., otto lilienfeld drew the transistor, in agonizing detail, and even a more interesting type than actually produced (cupric oxide!) - but - as far as anyone knows - never built one
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: tricky bit. the folks who mattered (nick t., o. lilienfeld - semiconductor, the lot) weren't u.s. bred
ascii_field: or lilienfeld's transistor.
asciilifeform: i (and quite a few other folks) have a collection of own 'lilienfeld's transistors'
asciilifeform: undata: otto lilienfeld has a transistor in the '20s.
asciilifeform: granted, there is quite a leap from Lilienfeld's cupric oxide transistor to kitchen table VLSI. but it seems like a promising idea to investigate.
asciilifeform: "in 1995 R. G. Arns found a 1948 legal deposition by Johnson which said the opposite: that Bell Labs back then had a project to test Lilienfeld's transistors, and before Johnson took over the project,"
