I'm trying to track down the source of a quote that's been sitting in my memory for years. It's all rotted away now, but there were two parts to it, something like:
"We wrote spells, carved them into a single crystal of silicon, and sliced it with a diamond saw".
This was essentially a very poetic description of computer programming / semiconductor manufacture.
The other quote was something about
"LEDs winking love poetry to each other after the lights go out."
I've Googled both of these phrases, and variations of them, but no luck. Does anyone recognize them?
