“Once debé, always debé,” says Okafor's Law, one of the most legendary unwritten [and unproven] laws etched in Nigeria’s socio-cultural consciousness. Basically, the entire message in Okafor’s Law is that once you have sex with a woman [or man] you can always hit it again — point being to make men feel better about themselves.
The law that changed technology forever was published
You see, Moore’s Law is one of the most important reasons why technology has evolved as quickly as it has in the past decade and some.
The law that features in today’s history lesson takes a completely different trajectory. Most hardware enthusiasts and makers have heard [or know] about Moore’s Law, which states that ‘the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years’ and boy, is that important.
You see, Moore’s Law is one of the most important reasons why technology has evolved as quickly as it has in the past decade and some. When Gordon Moore published the law on April 19, 1965, via Electronics Magazine, he predicted that transistor density on integrated circuits will double every eighteen months for “at least” the next ten years.
Going by that logic, it’s not hard to see why laptops have become thinner and smaller, smartphones have basically become the new PCs and technology has become a part of nearly every facet of our lives. Moore’s Law is arguably one of the most definitive hardware principles of the last century.
Also, Gordon Moore (who posited the law, in case you missed that) also went on to co-found Intel, one of the biggest tech companies in the world today (their chips are in your iPhones, your laptops and almost everywhere in between). His theory is predicted to remain relevant till at least 2020.
With that, ladies and gentlemen, we shall conclude today’s history lesson. I know you have learnt a lot, and I know you would also like your friends to get in on the gist — that’s why you should share this story. See you tomorrow,thank you and peez out!
