"NANOTECH: Star Trek technology comes alive at IDF"
Star Trek's William Shatner shared the podium with Intel Corp. CTO Patrick Gelsinger at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) here Thursday (Sept. 12), where the chief technology officer disclosed Intel's explorations in the areas of software radios, sensors and silicon photonics. "It's refreshing to be at a conference where the technology is not made of papier-m�ch�," said Shatner. Shatner was there to promote his new book, "I'm Working on That: A Trek from Science Fiction to Science Fact," but his quip was a fitting intro to Gelsinger's keynote address, "Expanding Moore's Law with Silicon Nanotechnology."
