I'm never not annoyed by futurists, in case you're wondering

I'm in a computer lab, I'm supposed to be doing my embedded systems homework, not posting a poll. minus points for me.

in news though, I got a 91% (!) on my signal processing test! I just sort of expect to fail the first round of tests, since that's what my first few semesters of grad school were like. Maybe I'm learning the system. This means I deserve a break. today.

but anyway, regarding embedded systems:

What will we do if Moore's Law ceases to apply?

OHMIGOD freak out!
0(0.0%)
Stop using computers
0(0.0%)
Listen to our engineering professors ramble on about how amazing something else is
0(0.0%)
Forget about Moore altogether
1(3.3%)
Forget about IBM altogether*
1(3.3%)
Stop quadrupling application requirements every 18-24 months
3(10.0%)
Make it fuzzier, so it still applies
2(6.7%)
Simultaneous multi-threading
0(0.0%)
Spread the word of Spacefem's Law**
3(10.0%)
Have an "end of Moore's Law" party*
0(0.0%)

* if you already did, you don't have to chose this option
** Spacefem's Law: The best way to slow IC technology progress to a crawl is to get engineers to waste time talking about Moore's Law all the time

update: a blip on wikipedia that I will start to call "mikkalai's law": the degree of twistedness of various popular formulations of Moore's law doubles every 18 months

word, dude.
