Moore’s Law alife and kicking for the foreseeable future

The folks over at Future Blogger are reporting in a very detailed piece that there is no end in sight for Moore’s Law. They assert that when the prevelant technology in microchip manufacturing since the late 1960s called CMOS will hit a brick wall in 2011, chip manufacturers will have to resort to nanotechnology for feature sizes below 22 nanometer.

They foresee a move from largely 2D chips towards 3D chips and acknowledge the importance of the recently discovered Memristor as well as breakthroughs in molecular transistor technology. Both significant discoveries in regards to keeping Moore’s Law relevant in the next decades.

The exact quote happens to escape me, but I recall having read something along the lines that in principles there are no natural laws preventing continued miniaturization in computation all the way down to the Planck scale.
