For those of you who were not with us in April, you can find some extended discussion of
this subject in the archives:

This includes the various estimates, an interesting thread pointing out that *bandwidth*
rather than CPU speed or memory is often the limiting factor on modern motherboards, and
my own attempted estimate of the amount of software in the human brain.

Keywords: "Memory bandwidth", "Human-level CPU power crossover date", and "Human-level
software crossover date".
