New computer

I just got a new computer to replace the one I have been using for the last four years. It’s amazing how much faster it is.

This is in line with my personal version of Moore’s law: A computer year is to a dog year as a dog year is to a human year.

Imagine if Moore’s law worked for people. Suppose every few years we could trade in our brain for a faster one. I wonder what that version of the human condition would be like.

Alas, I guess we will never know. In this universe at least, my brain seems, if anything, to be getting slower with time.
