Almost 65 years ago, two American engineers independently developed the first integrated circuit on a chip. The effect has been described as a second Industrial Revolution: now almost every powered device we use, from toasters to Telecasters, uses them. The first episode of our special series, The Butterfly Effect, examines the origin of the microchip, and the massive changes it brought to all aspects of our lives. With guests Paul Ceruzzi, John Dallesasse, Chris Miller.
