IEEE HISTORICAL MILESTONE EVENT
August 15, 2018, the IEEE celebrated the milestone event, "Celebrating the Birthplace of Silicon Valley", including the unveiling of an IEEE plaque by IEEE President James Jeffries at the former site of Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory at 391 San Antonio Rd., Mountain View. A historical view of events was provided by former Stanford Engineering Professor James F. Gibbons, who worked briefly at Shockley Labs. Please see James Gibbons talk for an interesting article on his presentation.
This was followed by an evening program at the Computer History Museum, "Tomorrow's Computers: More Moore?". Center for Software History Director David C. Brock led a conversation with Intel Senior Fellow and Director of Process Architecture and Integration Mark Bohr and Director of Microsystems Technology Office at DARPA William Chappell about the status of Moore's Law, the limits of silicon, and the emerging alternative technologies that will shape the future of computing. This event was streamed live on CHM's Facebook page.From left: IEEE President Jim Jefferies and IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section Milestone Coordinator Dick Ahrons unveil the Milestone plaque honoring the Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory.

DIVERSITY IN THE WORKFORCE - LIVING STORIES
Each one of us looks at the same situation from a different perspective. A diverse workforce with an opportunity to voice their opinions and insights will allow for more opportunities to think outside the box to dream up new products, enhance a product's features, or identify a problem which is obvious to one person, but invisible to a homogeneous workforce. See this movie trailer which offers some highlights of contributions made by minorities, in addition to the Hidden Figures. See A Place at the Table
