Re: Speed of Light Limitations
All I'm saying is that despite what anyone is "planning for", the speed of light is immutable. Despite what anyone says, it will not change, and it doesn't matter what any fanciful standards writers "envision". As designers bump up against that limit, the costs go higher, higher, and higher. I read another interesting conversation on this site about latency. This concerned electronic financial trading, where milliseconds can mean millions. The gripe was about how the big players will be able to afford communications that will be a few milliseconds faster than the rest of us, giving them an unstoppable advantage in high-speed trading. Now, there's something for standards writers and regulators to mull over.
