Abstract:

"The story of the Fairchild Eight is an example of the expression "history so recent that it's been forgotten." This a documentary is about the rift between William Shockley and the so-called "Traitorous Eight": Julius Blank, Victor Grinich, Jean Hoerni, Eugene Kleiner, Jay Last, Gordon Moore, Robert Noyce and Sheldon Roberts. The conflict shaped the valley. Shockley, who lived in Palo Alto for the greater part of his life, was the genius who got the Nobel Prize as one of the inventors of the transistor; his reputation attracted the best physicists in the country, but his high-handed methods crushed the individuality of eight of his workers who struck out on their own in 1957--the first shot in what was to be a decades-long salvo between company men and individualists"--Edited summary from Metroactive website.
