How Gordon Moore Made “Moore’s Law” — Backchannel — Medium
"The power of Moore’s insight — still true a half century after his 1965 article — is that the revolution in electronics depended on improving existing silicon technology, not altering its essential character. … Because Fairchild and its rivals had focused on minimizing the cost of electronics by investing in technology, “the complexity for minimum component costs has increased at a rate of roughly two per year.” Later this sentence would be seen as the first articulation of “Moore’s Law,” but the world’s attention would routinely rest on the “what” (the doubling of complexity) rather than the “why” (the minimization of cost by investing in advances in chemical printing in order to gain competitive advantage). … most discussions missed his underlying point that the doubling was not itself the fundamental dynamic. His breakthrough insight was that the pursuit of the best, lowest-cost electronics, motivated by economic competition, would necessarily create this doubling through an ongoing, extensive, and expensive social effort."

What does Google need on mobile? — Benedict Evans
"The key change in all of this, I think, is that Google has gone from a world of almost perfect clarity - a text search box, a web-link index, a middle-class family’s home - to one of perfect complexity - every possible kind of user, device, access and data type. It’s gone from a firehose to a rain storm. But on the other hand, no-one knows water like Google. No-one else has the same lead in building understanding of how to deal with this. Hence, I think, one should think of every app, service, drive and platform from Google not so much as channels that might conflict but as varying end-points to a unified underlying strategy, which one might characterize as ‘know a lot about how to know a lot’."

Poland’s warning to Europe: Russia’s aggression in Ukraine changes everything | Natalie Nougayrede | Comment is free | The Guardian
"Polish anxiety is only enhanced by the feeling that, as Zaborowski puts it, “we are lonely in the region”. The Baltic states may share Poland’s perspective. But Hungary is seen as a client-state of Russia, and the Czech Republic and Slovakia have failed to put brakes on the penetration of Russian capital and influence, which is felt in their criticism of European sanctions against Russia. Central Europe has become geopolitically fragmented."
