The Future is Bright: For Starters: The Knowledge Doubling Curve

The more we know, the faster we know more.  Knowledge volume undergoes exponential growth, doubling and redoubling over time.

Buckminster Fuller created the “Knowledge Doubling Curve”.
Up until 1900 it was said that the accumulation of knowledge doubled every century.
At the end of World War 2 every 25 years.Today – well anywhere from 1 to 1.5 years to – Nanotechnology they say every 2 years – Clinical knowledge every 18 months.
And IBM predicts that in the next couple of years, information will double every 11 hours!

The Will Doctor is ENTHUSIASTIC about the future in store for our children and grandchildren-and even for us!

More on this to come in future posts, to complement the (rather dry) dynamics of estate and tax planning!
