This is ridiculously *stupid*. If we had announced every time we had connected 16 transistors together we would have *never* made any progress. We have to start thinking at a completely different level or progress will be *very* slow. It will be so slow that we will not be able to solve our mounting problems, and this will result, eventually, in a disastrous collapse of the world's economies, sending the world into it's third and last war. Humanity does not have a chance if we keep on playing around like we have all the time in the world to fix our problems.
