EMC Poaches Top Intel Exec

gelsingerThirty years at Intel was evidently more than enough for Pat Gelsinger. He’s giving up his job as senior VP of the company’s Digital Enterprise Group to run EMC’s storage-products operations, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The move, which will be effective immediately upon its announcement, is quite a blow for Intel (INTC). Gelsinger had done stints as the company’s chief technology officer and as head of its research division. He helped quarterback Intel’s 386 and 486 processors, played a major role in the launch of Nehalem and had been considered a likely successor to Intel CEO Paul Otellini. Now he’s a contender for the top job at EMC (EMC) when CEO Joe Tucci decides to step down.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
