In between january 1st and december 30th of 2012, more informationw as created on the internet, than existed on january 1st 2012.
granted most of it is porn, but so was the original data, and the data that can be described as "scientific" followed the same pattern.

Science also usually takes leaps, not continual smooth curves... bakc in the 1950~s IBM(who was MAJOR player at the time) calculated that the world would need a total of 4 computers, today there is certainly more computers than humanbeings.

last year th first petri-dish grown hamburger was "officially" served (price about $2 million, even though the one who ate it didn't have to pay)...

If you can't see technologcal advancements, you may be looking at the wrong field...

I totally agree with you. The new I phone coming out now is 40 times faster then my I phone 4S. Plus from now till 2030, only 17 years away, we will see more technological advancement then all of human history until today! I can go on and on but needless to say when it comes to advancement we have seen a lot but nothing compared to what is coming.

The technology to make that phone 300-1000x faster is already and long been known. Even when iphone 1 was out they already know how to obtain the specs of what you could probably conceive as iphone 11. This is true of just about 90% of all consumer electronic types. When you were buying your 1GB HD, 512MB RAM computer for $1000 in 1999, they already knew exactly how to fit 1TB of space into that HD and 8GB RAM. You as an everyday person will always be behind the REAL curve, especially as a consumer.

Of course that is true. My point that innovation is far from over and in fact going faster holds true though.
