Title: It's Time to Redefine Moore's Law Again

The familiar story of Moore's law is actually inaccurate. Here, this article corrects the story, leading to different projections for the future. Moore's law is a fluid idea whose definition changes over time. It thus doesn't have the ability to "end," as is popularly reported, but merely takes different forms as the semiconductor and computer industries evolve.
