Default Processor pioneer Victor Poor dies of cancer at 79

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/08...poor_obituary/

Quote:
Obituary Victor Poor, whose death was announced this weekend, isn’t one of the first names to come to mind among computing history, but he played a pivotal role in the development of Intel's early architectures that went on to dominate modern computing and is a legend in ham radio circles.

Poor, along with fellow radio enthusiast and student Harry Pyle, designed what became Intel's 4004 chip, on Thanksgiving weekend in 1969 – sketching out the architecture in his living room in a marathon four-day session. He also played a key role in working with Intel on the 8008 chip, the world’s first 8-bit microprocessor.
