Momentum Monday on Tuesday…Moore’s Law and Quantum Computing
Tren Griffin said this yesterday and it caught my eye:
I’ve watched people consistently underestimate the power of Moore’s law over the years. And these people work with it every day.
Moore’s law refers to an observation made by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965. He noticed that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since their invention. Moore’s law predicts that this trend will continue into the foreseeable future.
Adding the global, mobile, social web to Moore’s law has created these freakishly large and profitable companies that no analyst has been able to put in a box.
Now there is Quantum computing which Tren says is far more powerful than Moore’s law. Here is everything you need to know about Quantum computing. Go get a tutor and come back here next Monday for a further discussion. Reading it slowly and out loud helps me fall asleep.
I was sitting with my friend Alex Tarhini today who works for Stevie Cohen’s ‘Point 72’ fund and we were both talking about how bullish we are on startups despite the bouts of silliness we see around us. Obviously, we need to find great founders, but the tools at their disposal are magical.
Which made me also think this evening that I will respond to all Apple and Google bears in my stream with simply #mooreslaw #quantumcomputing.
