The Flash is a big fan of Gordon Moore, the noted co-founder of Intel who in 1965 observed that “the number of components that could be etched onto the surface of a silicon wafer was doubling at regular intervals and would do so for the foreseeable future.” The effects of this observation – Moore’s Law – have been momentous over the past three decades, with chip makers continuously miniaturizing to create computers that are more powerful and more affordable. This changes the world!

But now chip makers are wondering if Moore’s Law has run its course. What’s next? Quantum computing, perhaps…
