Exponential Growth

  • Computers continue Moore’s Law every two years by having more computing power in a smaller space at a lower cost using the same power.  Wearable computers will be everywhere by 2020.

  • What even Moore couldn't understand at the time was that this process would, at an astonishing rate, extend to every corner of modern life. It wasn't just about chips, because once you put those chips into a telephone, or a desktop calculator, a car or a bomb — those systems also took on the characteristics of Moore's Law. http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=86673&page=2
Where Paul Gilding in "The Great Disruption" talks about the end of growth, we are actually going to experience the consequences of exponential growth caused by the digital revolution that will extend into every developed country and the lives of every person. Millions of the poorest people in the world have cell phones.
