This Presentation takes a look at the idea of exponential growth as opposed to liner growth. Exponential growth means something is growing at a constant rate rather than by a constant amount. On a chart the shape of the curve is often times compared to the shape of a hockey stick. We also look at Moore's law which is perhaps the best known example of exponential growth in the world of information technology. It is based on an article predicting that the number or transistors on an economically feasible silicon substrate integrated circuit would be double every 18-24 months.
