Where is the monument of the MOSFET and it's inventor?

 

James Watt and the steam engine fuelled the First Industrial Revolution and their monuments are everywhere.

Billions of MOSFETs are in the silicon chips of every smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop and power-hungry data centre. Without the MOSFET, the chips and the corresponding electronic devices there will be no internet, world wide web, Google, Facebook, Instagram, Tweeter, WhatsApp, digital economy, online shopping…  In the last few decades, the MOSFET has completely transform the economy, the society and us as humans. We still do not understand in full the magnitude and the consequences of this transformation.
