Moore's Law - One Law to Rule them All

Moore’s law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every 18 months. Moore’s Law was first noticed by Gordon E. Moore who described the trend in 1965. ... Read more

The Network Effect

Metcalf's Law Things become more valuable when you connect them. V=N2 … or  The value of the network is proportional to the number of connected users. As the cost of the network grows linearly the value of the network grows exponentially. The more... Read more

Moore’s Law meets the Network Effect

Access to exponentially more powerful networks will become less and less expensive.  At the same time the real value of these networks will continuously compound and increase. Moore’s Law meets Metcalfe’s law This is the phase we are in today. As... Read more

Spiraling Benefits

In networks, we find self-reinforcing virtuous circles. Each additional member increases the network’s value, which in turn attracts more members, initiating a spiral of benefits. Read more

Neilsen's Law of Abundant Bandwidth

Connection speeds increase by 50% per year. Internet backbone traffic speeds increase even more. Average bandwidth lags, but the trend is clear. Average bandwidth increases more slowly for three reasons: • Telecoms companies are conservative •... Read more
