The fabs will soon be delivering “16nm” chips. But they are not in fact 16nm chips. That is just marketer spin. The wire to wire spacing, the pitch, is still 64nm, as it has been for some considerable time. There have been substantial improvements in power consumption, and this and that, but chips have just stopped getting denser. There are no more transistors per unit area than in previous technology generations. They are 64nm chips, and we have been stuck at 64 nm for some time.
For a long time, social decay and dysgenesis was masked by the march of science and technology. After World War II, the march of science pretty much stopped, but technology continued. After 1972, march of technology stopped in many areas, and severely slowed in most areas. Since then, one technology after another has been stopping.
Living standards in the US have been stagnant or falling since 1972.
DNA technology continues with exponential growth. Possibly hard disk storage and fiber optic bandwidth does also. For the moment.
If we are going to make it to the singularity, either have to have a political and cultural renewal, or else DNA technology has to make us smarter people. Unfortunately, while DNA reading and DNA editing continues to progress, DNA writing has maxed out. It is far from clear that we can make smarter people without a thousandfold improvement in DNA writing.
