DG anthology: Tech and innovation
Since at least as far back as the early 1970s, technological advance has been in the grip of Moore’s law – whereby the processing power of electronics doubles roughly every two years, matching the step change in the density of components that comes with each new generation of circuit boards. Against this trend of exponential acceleration, Slow Journalism might seem ill equipped to keep up. But with our reporting on technology, we’ve found the opposite: surveying topics from geoengineering to genetic engineering, hitting pause to take stock of where we’ve come from gives us a better idea about where we’re headed. It also cuts through the hyperbole and headlong futurism that so often surrounds technology news. Instead here is where you’ll find highlights from our tech coverage – keeping track of the innovations that are changing our world with one eye on the past.
