John explains Moore's Law to Derek: "The guy who found it at Intel said that every two years [the] number of transistors on a computer chip doubles. Thirty years ago it was an observation, now it is a law." Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore first observed that transistor counts had doubled *every* year in a 1965 paper - that's *forty-three* years before the events in this episode. The term "Moore's law" was coined around 1970, *thirty-eight* years before the events in this episode. Only in 1975 did Moore alter his projection to a doubling the number of transistors every two years. That's closer to the 30 years John says, but by that time it was no longer "an observation".
