SAN JOSE, Calif. — The April 19, 1965 issue of Electronics magazine has become a very hot commodity.
The issue contains Intel co-founder Gordon Moore’s observations about the advance of semiconductors, which led to what’s come to be known as Moore’s Law. Problem is, Moore and Intel have just photocopies, and they want the original copy. Early last week, Intel offered a $10,000 bounty for a mint-condition copy.
A short time later, a bound volume of Electronics containing the issue disappeared from a University of Illinois library.
The university has since moved its other copy to its rare-book collection. Intel has pulled its request and says it’s in discussions with people who claim to have copies.
