More details of Obama’s Oregon Intel visit

President Obama’s Friday visit to Intel’s research factory in Hillsboro, Ore., will be streamed live starting around 11:30 a.m., The Oregonian reported today.

Obama’s meeting with Intel Chief Excecutive Paul Otellini at the D1D research factory and they’ll talk up Intel’s efforts to support science, technology and math education.

Intel’s the prime example of the investment in innovation that Obama called for in his state of the union address.

The company announced last October that it’s spending up to $8 billion on a new chip factory in Oregon and upgrades to other plants as it moves to 22 nanometer chips. It said the expansion will create 1,000 new, ongoing jobs in Oregon where it’s already the largest private employer.
