I was thinking about the average American’s capacity for attention this morning when I posted the following:

At the time, I also thought there was a correlation between Attention Span and Moore’s Law.

After further thought I think there is a correlation.

As a result, I suggest the following: as Moore’s Law states “the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years” the Attention Span Theory posits the average American’s attention span shrinks by 200% approximately every two years.
