Paul Graham at Pycon

Here's an ll1-discuss thread with some notes on Paul Graham's keynote speech at this week's PyCon.

From there, Paul said that if Moore's law holds, computers will be 78 quintillion times faster in 100 years (with similarly large increases in memory and storage capacities). Therefore, things we still see as scandalously wasteful today will be quite acceptable and even desirable tomorrow. Finding these interesting inefficiencies that directly lead to more elegant solutions and more productive programmers are an area that deserves more attention.
