Morozov I 218
Moore's Law/Kurzweil/Morozov: The idea that Moore's law resembles a law of nature is widespread in Silicon Valley - it is one of the original myths of Ray Kurzweil's singularity movement - and has long spread beyond the technology industry, often called upon to justify action.
Ilkka Tuomi/Morozov: Ilkka Tuomi conducted an extensive empirical study on industry growth rates and media echoes - TuomiVsKurzweil: Thesis: In fact, there is no such law. Most of the discussions about Moore's Law are historically inaccurate and go far beyond the available data. (1)
Tuomi: sociologically fascinating is how myths are created in modern society and how quickly they find their way into scientific literature, industrialist speeches and governmental announcements all over the world. (2) (See Moore's Law/Kelly; >MorozovVsKelly)
