In an attempt to understand the impact of the Technion – Israel
Institute of Technology, the authors of the 2012 book Technion Nation:
Technion’s Contribution to Israel and the World asked graduates of the
institution a survey question that verged on the poetic: “Ernest
Hemingway once wrote an entire story in only six words. It was ‘Baby
shoes. Never used. For sale.’ Please describe your contribution to
Israel and to humanity, in six words.”Many responses touched on
the diversity of Technion graduates’ technological accomplishments:
“Provide poor countries with appropriate technology… Developed Intel’s
8087 microprocessor… Simulation software for unmanned drone aircraft.”
