Increase your space and time resolution by a factor of
2 and your computational complexity increases by a factor

The increasing gap between processor speeds and memory
speeds is not making things easier, either.

The singularity depends on improved software, not on
improved hardware.

by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
