"Right after Moore's prescient prognostication, anyone with a slide rule  --  or a Texas Instruments calculator -- could have easily run some numbers and determined that within a generation there would be computational gains a billionfold or more."

It kind of annoys me how people throw out numbers like "million" and "billion" without actually doing the math. According to a 2006 study done at MIT, the doubling time for Moore's Law is 2.18 years. (Actually that's just for computation increase -- storage and communication have slightly different doubling rates.) A 2.18-year doubling time means it takes 22 years to get a factor of 1,000 increase (which would be "a generation" as quoted above). It takes 43 years to get a factor of 1 million and 65 years to get a factor of 1 billion.

Now, a factor of 1,000 increase is nothing to scoff at, and the article goes on to make a good (and correct in my opinion) point about how the majority of people fail at non-linear thinking.

Old people with exceptional memories have lots of giant neurons with a mysterious evolutionary past.

One of the biggest differences involves peculiar, oversize brain cells known as von Economo neurons. SuperAgers have almost five times as many of them as other people.

Your attention, please. People make mistakes every day because they lose focus. Maybe your car drifts across the center line or an error slips into a report at work.
