It is easy to underestimate the importance of digital technologies; to many, it seems as if these innovations have under-delivered. As a line on the Founders Fund website once complained, “We wanted flying cars and all we got was 140 characters.” Actually, that's not all we have gotten, nor is it even the slightest fraction of what we will get. New sources of energy, new cures for diseases, faster modes of transportation, more capable robots, and so on all originate from the Knowledge Loop. Digital technology now gives us the capabilities to vastly accelerate and expand access to the Knowledge Loop.
