World zipping along

Tom Wheeler is chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (bet you didn't know that, I didn't).

Anyhow, he points out that Chicago became the second city because the railroads convened there. New York was the media hub because the telegraph started from there.

Now, those things are meaningless--artifacts.

Moore's Law dictates that because of microchips, the power of devices doubles every two years.

In 20 yrs, microchips will be 1000x as powerful as today. Great, maybe they can rock the baby and empty the dishwasher.

Wireless connects billions--pretty soon, all devices will be connected to each other, too.

Maybe all the devices can just talk and figure things out.

Wait--they already are!
