>Intel colleagues changed it from the complexity of the chips to the
>performance of computers and decided that not only did you get a benefit
>from the doubling every two years but we were able to increase the clock
>frequency, too, so computer performance was actually doubling every 18
>months. I guess that's a corollary of Moore's Law.
>Moore's Law has been the name given to everything that changes
>exponentially in the industry. I saw, if Gore invented the Internet, I
>invented the exponential.
