For those who follow technology, there isn’t a single concept which embodies the incredible progress we have made over the last several decades, than that of Moore’s Law. In a paper written in 1965, a man named Gordon E. Moore made a prediction, which at the time was mocked by many. The prediction stated that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits would double every year, because it had done so up until that point in 1965. Since then the law has been modified, and many within the industry use the 12-24 month time frame for the doubling. Three years after Moore’s famous prediction, he founded Intel, the semiconductor manufacturer, now worth in excess of $150 billion.
