Issue 119 - 01 | The Most Important Company In the World: Intel, Moore’s Law, and the Heartbeat of Civilization
By Michael S. Malone Published July 23, 2014 12:00 p.m.

“The biggest invention of our digital age is one we rarely think of: ourselves. […]

Mankind lived for hundreds of thousands of years with almost no change; then, with the Industrial Revolution we learned to inhabit a world of continuous improvement. But now, we deal with lives that experience the equivalent of an Industrial Revolution every few years. We’ve survived it, we’ve adapted to it, and now we are learning to thrive in it. And, though we barely noticed the change, we now live differently, learn differently, communicate differently, an ultimately, think differently. … In other words, we have internalized Moore’s Law. Its beat is now our heartbeat; its pace of change is now the heartbeat of civilization.”
