Tax, tax and tax is the reason. Government's must become better at managing existing funds and using them effectively rather than rely on increasing taxes.
As I review performance trends, I am struck by a consistent theme across many technologies: bandwidth improves much more quickly than latency. Here, I list a half-dozen performance milestones to document this observation, many reasons why it happens, a few ways to cope with it, a rule of thumb to quantify it, plus an example of how to design systems differently based on this observation.
– Maybe someday the computing industry will actually pay some attention and make genuine progress on this instead of obsessing over bandwidth.
