Over the next 20 years, this snowball process launched the momentous startup-company explosion of information-technology firms.
Essentially, Silicon Valley began as 65 new enterprises born out of Shockley's eight former employees.
Those electrons flow into the black graphene ink to produce an electric current.
Across 98 percent of the planet, the end of the 20th century saw the hottest temperatures in the last two millennia.

The 1.5-kilogram (3.3-pound) chunk of volcanic basalt in the center is 3.4 billion years old.whether an innovation is new to the firm, new to the market, new to the industry, or new to the world) and kind of innovation (i.e.whether it is processor product-service system innovation).In recent organizational scholarship, researchers of workplaces have also distinguished innovation to be separate from creativity, by providing an updated definition of these two related but distinct constructs: Workplace creativity concerns the cognitive and behavioral processes applied when attempting to generate novel ideas.Workplace innovation concerns the processes applied when attempting to implement new ideas.Such innovation takes place through the provision of more-effective products, processes, services, technologies, or business models that are made available to markets, governments and society.An innovation is something original and more effective and, as a consequence, new, that "breaks into" the market or society.Innovation is the specific function of entrepreneurship, whether in an existing business, a public service institution, or a new venture started by a lone individual in the family kitchen.It is the means by which the entrepreneur either creates new wealth-producing resources or endows existing resources with enhanced potential for creating wealth.A prime example of innovation involved the explosive boom of Silicon Valley startups out of the Stanford Industrial Park.In 1957, dissatisfied employees of Shockley Semiconductor, the company of Nobel laureate and co-inventor of the transistor William Shockley, left to form an independent firm, Fairchild Semiconductor.
