In this morning’s Wall Street Journal, former Intel CEO and chairman Craig Barrett reflects on 35 years at the giant company and offers several bits of business advice, including :”Don’t mess with Moore’s law.” Barrett, an avid fly fisher, apparently had no say in the reporter’s description of his gear. “He pulls out a photograph, saying, ‘Hey, look at this.’ It shows a grinning Barrett cradling a gigantic trout he has just caught while fly fishing in South America, ‘Lemme tell ya,’ he says, gesturing like he’s working the fly pole, ‘That guy was so close I had to let him swim away before I could set the fly down in front of him.'”
