I read an interesting article the other day, courtesy of longform.org. It was on the history of the internet, and what the internet of the future will look like.
A fascinating hypothesis, and worth thinking about. I think the question of whether exponential growth can continue, or how it becomes a sigmoid curve, is fascinating. A particularly intriguing idea was that growth curves run up against physical constraints – hence the potential for Moore’s law to slow down.
Overall I think there’s a lot of change left to come, so I don’t know that I’d think about this in the same way as the author. But a fascinating and thought provoking read.
