Can Silicon Keep Pace with Moore's Law?

In another existence, the Christian Science Monitor (for whom I am a correspondent) has just run a story I wrote. It deals with the future of Moore's Law, and how physics is starting to become a major speed bump to further advances in chip density. It may be a little light-weight for the more geeky of you, but it does have some interesting tidbits. For example, did you know that AMD already has 16nm technology on their roadmap? Or that one layer on Intel's 65nm chips is only 5 atoms thick?

I found your full length article to be an interesting read.
Like to hear your take on the silicon sensors on digital cameras if ever have the time.
Look forward to hearing more!
