Inventor of the microchip

Jack Kilby, “The Gift” statue: “Symbolically, the sculpture represents transmission of knowledge from one generation to the next and how that transmission has been affected by the microchip….”

I’m found of this alternative description of “The Gift” : The sculpture makes Kilby look a bit like a comic book archvillain scientist. He leans forward, a hulking guy with a bald head, his tie flapping in the Kansas wind. A microchip is barely visible in his meaty left hand, which he extends toward a teenage boy.
Meanwhile, an impatient-looking girl seems to demand the microchip while pointing skyward, "to the stars," according to the statue's Great Bend sculptor, Chet Cale.
Quick, future generations -- grab the microchip before the breeze blows it away!

It wasn’t much to see. And it’s hard to believe that this would be the location of the largest St. Patty’s Day parade. I hadn’t seen a single person in hours...

It was basically art kids singing kareoke, but they le me tag along with them as they took resident artist Aram Bartholl out for his last night in the States.
