Moore's Law observes that transistor density in conventional integrated circuits has been doubling every 18 to 24 months since 1964. Ray Kurzweil proposes that there is a "generalized Moore's Law," not just for the past and present of computing (e.g., vacuum tubes and integrated circuits), but also for future platforms. He has charted a double exponential acceleration in price-performance of computing (cps per $1000 of purchased computer) since at least 1890, through five different computer manufacturing paradigms

Is Kurzweil right? If so, what are the near-term implications, risks, and opportunities of double exponential growth in the price-performance of our information and communication technologies? If not, when and where will the 'law' fail?
