OG of the Microprocessor[1] – and much more with Ted Hoff

Intel alumni Marcian “Ted” Hoff sits down for an extended interview with The Silicon Valley Podcast’s Shawn Flynn.  Over the course of nearly an hour, Ted recounts some highlights from his work on the 4004, but spends most of his time discussing other aspects of his life at the leading edge of technology.  Topics include: the importance of education and how he made his way to Intel; insights on Intel’s founders; work on CODECs and telephony; lessons from his time at Atari; and, insights on patent IP gleaned from many years as the Chief Technologist at Teklicon.  And most importantly, what lessons his journey might hold for today’s entrepreneurs.
