Interviewed by Britain’s Telegraph, the CEO of ARM Holdings, here’s Simon Segars, noting that his company recently shipped its 50-billionth microchip (mostly for cell phones):
All this amounts to pressure on Segars to explain to an expectant industry where the next stage of growth is going to come from. His answer is, quite literally, everywhere. “We’re in an amazing period at the moment where there is a Cambrian explosion of innovation and design in technology,” he says.
He argues that there’s growth in a raft of different products beyond mobiles, from wearable technology to products loosely defined as the “internet of everything” (more on that later).
“To use the analogy, this Cambrian explosion is enabling a vast number of species to be created,” says Segars.
What’s interesting in the context is simply that he assumes that readers will know what he means by the term. Culturally, that’s important.
Similarly, the concept of intelligent design was used recently in a murder mystery series. People can’t be interested in design in nature if they don’t know what we consider to be issues or what we are even talking about.
By the way, speaking of the Cambrian explosion, here’s the showing at about 8:30 pm EST for Steve Meyer’s Darwin’s Doubt:
