A worthwhile point to ponder about :
Broadband penetration going up and up every year. Personal computer in three years will be a pretty phenomenal device. Hardware won't be the constraint. It is not the microprocessor or the network - it is software. Software that is managing itself and reducing the complexity
For the first time I'm actually seeing someone look at Software as a potential choke point as Computing technologies evolve. Point rightly made is that we need Software that reduces complexity - There is enough of complexity all around us anyways !
