Moore's Law is indisputably ending -- but what was it even in the first place?  In particular, can the phenomenon we think of as Moore's Law actually be better explained by Theodore Wright in a 1936 paper on aircraft economics?  If so, could Wright's Law continue to apply as Moore's Law ends?  More generally, what are the ramifications for software as silicon-based microprocessors reach their physical limitations?  In this talk, we will explore the end of Moore's Law, the prospects for Wright's Law in microprocessors, and what it all means for those of us who build software systems.
