Much hand-wringing appears in the press about the seemingly unstoppable ascendance of a few large corporations in computing. Everything seems to be increasingly centralized in such corporations. This presentation will explain why such centralization and the triumph of first movers is facilitated by three technological factors: the end of Moore's Law, compiling complex algorithms into hardware (which may reach its climax in quantum computing), and the value of aggregating large amounts of data. Remedies are also discussed.
