GiantLeap.com provides the Latest News, Videos and Information on Exponential Technologies in an understandable, common sense way.
The tabs/subtabs at the top right of the website (Exponential Technologies, Forces, History and Sectors) provide the context. On the left there is news by sector and some additional thoughts in the blog section.
That said, Exponential Technologies are dramatically changing our world faster and faster. The impact of this acceleration will have an extreme impact on all our lives in many ways.
Feel encouraged to follow your intuition and skip around the site as your interest level dictates. Most important is to get the gist of what is already happening to the world around you and what’s about to happen.
The pages at the top right of the site provides the historical context for Exponential Technologies. Each section tab has related sub tabs that detail the topic. The Categories on the Left hand side are News and Commentary about Exponential Technology and related info.
To get a quick overview, here is an excellent 5 minute video introduction on some of what we might can expect from Exponential Technologies:
The Giant Leap website is dedicated to the exploration of these forces and their impact.

Many of the Sectors also operate as Exponential Technologies and have great influence on the speed of technology beyond their own Sector. For example, Processors not only accelerate in speed and cost reduction exponentially, they apply across most, if not all, technology sectors.
This acceleration is much easier for us to see as processing technology has come so far. The Smart Phone many of us have in our pockets has more processing capability than a room full of computers just a few decades ago. And, while the processing power increases exponentially, the prices has halved every couple of years or so.
As this happens, there are other things to consider. While we have gone through technological shifts before, many agree, it is different this time. In this next industrial revolution, we will become partners with machines.
Erik Brynjolfsson frames it as “The Economics of Abundance”.
Processor speed, data storage, internet, software, crowd tools, etc. are tools that increase speed in general. And, most technology sectors employ most of these in their advance. As more sectors employ multiple of these accelerating technologies, the speed will be jaw dropping and the disruption will be even more extreme. And it is continuing to get faster and faster.
And Exponential Technology is not just faster and cheaper, but in many ways better too…
Applying leverage, as described in these pages, is a primary force in the advancement of technology. It is where a lot of the speed and scale is coming from.This in-common, extreme leverage available is accelerating technological capability and is a pretty good metaphor for where to look to view Giant Leaps in technology. Others copy, replicate and accelerate even faster across sectors.
