Abstract:
Carl Sagan once advised the public to "never underestimate the power of exponential." It was sound advice. Unfortunately, as with so much other wise counsel, it is easy to dismiss.

The Power of Zenzizenzizenzic

Minneapolis, MN | Posted on February 20th, 2008

In fact these fields are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. According to Gartner Research, the field rapid prototype manufacturing (i.e. machines which can physically print objects) will grow more than 100-fold. And in the past few months, researchers in Finland have replaced a patient's lower jaw with synthetic material growth from stem cells; researchers at the University of Minnesota have successfully demonstrated that they could grow a beating rat heart from living cells; and self-driven robotic cars have successfully navigated through an urban environment. Progress in these fields will not stop.

It has been said that the future is here, it is just unevenly distributed. This is true and if one studies the amazing technological progress occurring in information technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, neurotechnology and robotics and then applies the power of zenzizenzizenzic to these advances, it is easy to understand how it would behoove us all to reconsider Carl Sagan's sage advice.
