Absorb or remove "External Links" and "FAQ" and "Data" sections?

If these are really important to the subject, perhaps they can be used as references. If not, why add them here? Can't people just Google to find the latest links? "External Links" will not usually be maintained by anyone here as they change over time. To illustrate, take a look at the article's table of contents. The entire bottom 1/3 of it is references, notes, external links, faqs, etc. In other words, not topics within the article. To me, that seems to distract from the real topic headers.Pat Palmer 01:31, 9 May 2007 (CDT)

"Other considerations" a bit vague

What's the section really about? Can someone try to choose an explicit header title?Pat Palmer 01:33, 9 May 2007 (CDT)

revising status back to 2

This article has good content. My compliments to its contributors. I think we can improve it yet, so I'm putting it back into developing status. I think it can be made more concise and can tell the story of Moore's law with more clarity for lay people. This rule of thumb has attracted enormous attention because it has held true for so long. Mainly I think we can revise the manner of introducing it so that it has more "literary impact", for lack of a better term. I'll try to come back to it, but if anyone else wants to give that a try in the meantime, knock yourself out.Pat Palmer 01:42, 9 May 2007 (CDT)

preserving Moore disambiguation for the future

This was formerly a footnote in this article:

Gordon Moore, a founder of Intel and namesake of Moore's law,
might be confused with ''G.E. Moore'', [[philosopher]] 
[[George Edward Moore]], the creator of [[Moore's paradox]]

less is more: archiving much of the old article

This article contains, in my opinion, far more speculation and discussion than the concept warrants. So I'm archiving the bulk of the (in my opinion unnecessary) content at Talk:Moore%27s_law/oldstuff.Pat Palmer 16:16, 22 September 2007 (CDT)
