I am assuming that an extra 50 years of technology will find some
solution to the problem.  Faster chips?  Better software?  I don't

If I had a nickel for every time someone predicted technology would
stop advancing and was wrong I'd be the richest man in the world.
Maybe mores law fails by 2020, but something new will come along.
It always does.

Even if technology can't meet the needs, having 50 more years to
figure out another way around the problem is better than 10.
