I've just come back from a network conference
(http://www.ja.net/conferences/networkshop/index.html) where we had a
wonderful talk from Vint Cerf (see http://www.mci.com/cerfsup
particularly the presentation about the Internet and IT which has some
of the same slides he used yesterday). He made the point that in
several decades we've seen hardware get bigger and faster by several
orders of magnitude, but software hasn't done anything of the sort.
