About the Book

    The Blankenhorn Effect explains how Moore's Law, a challenge laid down in 1965, has been applied to all the technology we touch.
    Not only have silicon engineers met Gordon Moore's 1965 challenge, so that today billions of circuits dance on slivers no bigger than a fingernail, but so have those working with magnetic memory, with optical memory, with optical storage, and even with radio to create today's Internet.
    Here you can learn why copper networks are obsolete, see why Enron and Worldcom self-destructed, and meet the Hollywood starlet who created digital radio.
    In just a few hours, The Blankenhorn Effect will turn you from a technology novice into a knowing member of the digerati, able to understand how Moore's Law is changing your work, your industry, and your children's future.
    You'll also gain a new perspective on the future. You'll learn about exciting new frontiers of technology and get a list of detailed Web addresses you can use for your own flight to the future.
    You are not a Dummie. But if you don't understand Moore's Law you've been made to feel like one. Now, with the Blankenhorn Effect, you can take your place confidently in the 21st century.
