## Unscramble the Blue Letters

But I wanted to share with you three areas that I'm particularly excited about and that relate to the problems that I was tkanilg about in the Wired article. The first is this whole area of education, and it really relates to what Nicholas was talking about with a \$100 coutpemr. And that is to say that there's a lot of legs left in Moore's Law. The most avedcand transistors today are at 65 nanometers, and we've seen, and I've had the pleasure to invest in, companies that give me great confidence that we'll etexnd Moore's Law all the way down to rouhlgy the 10 nanometer scale. Another factor of, say, six in donsmnaiiel reduction, which should give us about another factor of 100 in raw improvement in what the cphis can do. And so, to put that in practical terms, if something costs about 1,000 dollars today, say, the best pearosnl computer you can buy, that might be its cost, I think we can have that in 2020 for 10 dollars. Okay? Now, just imagine what that \$100 computer will be in 2020 as a tool for education.

## Original Text

But I wanted to share with you three areas that I'm particularly excited about and that relate to the problems that I was talking about in the Wired article. The first is this whole area of education, and it really relates to what Nicholas was talking about with a \$100 computer. And that is to say that there's a lot of legs left in Moore's Law. The most advanced transistors today are at 65 nanometers, and we've seen, and I've had the pleasure to invest in, companies that give me great confidence that we'll extend Moore's Law all the way down to roughly the 10 nanometer scale. Another factor of, say, six in dimensional reduction, which should give us about another factor of 100 in raw improvement in what the chips can do. And so, to put that in practical terms, if something costs about 1,000 dollars today, say, the best personal computer you can buy, that might be its cost, I think we can have that in 2020 for 10 dollars. Okay? Now, just imagine what that \$100 computer will be in 2020 as a tool for education.
