Introduction to Your Future

This is going to be an Introduction to Your Future, a series of articles that will give you an imression how your life might change in the coming decade due to an accelerating Computer Technology. Accelerating because developments in the computer industry show an exponential growth. Instead of a continuous growth like 1 to 2 and then 3 and 4, the growth in computer speed doubles every two years. As a consequence of that growth in this sector looks like 1 to 2 then 4, then 8, 16, 32 etc. At the same time the price of the hardware keeps falling every year while devices are getting smaller and smaller. To illustrate how amazing this growth is I put to devices next to each other in order to see what happened in technology during the last 2 decades.

We have to Look Back

To understand what we can expect from technology in the (near) future, we must look at what happened in the passed. Particularly what happened in the computer industry.

For this reasons we made this background information section about computing technology, today and in the past. Next to that we'll pay attention to what is developing right now on top of computing technology. See what is already possible today and what we may expect soon.
