I guess we're back to understanding data structures and algorithms again.

I thought that ended around the end of the 90s


most stuff since around then that drove down prices for some things could probably be explained by scale up of production runs and thats nowhere near the sort of thing we saw for two decades before about then.

In 1965, Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits would double every other year for the foreseeable future.

I heard an interview with Moore where he flatly denied this, and said that what became Moore's Law was an internal estimate that this would occur for the next $X years... it wasn't intended to be for forever, and he was surprised at how long it lasted.

I think it surprised everyone lasting as long as it did.


but guessing around the end of the 90s they might have hit some kind of wavelength of something related limit


just a guess
