The MOST interesting thing, though: the hierarchy of great people, from William Shockley to Prof. Samaun Samadikun to Prof. Budi Rahardjo ๐Ÿ˜‰ Prof. Samaun was Shockley’s student, and Prof. BR was Prof. Samaun’s student. So all Prof. BR’s student and the audience yesterday have a close relation with the inventor of transistor! How cool is that! ๐Ÿ˜€
