"Soon, all manufactured objects, from sneakers to drill presses to lamp shades to cans of soda, will contain a tiny sliver of embedded thought."
"Chips are becoming cheap and tiny enough to slip into every object we make. Eventually every can of soup will have a chip in its lid. Every light switch will contain a chip. Every book will have a chip embedded in its spine. Every shirt will have at least one chip sewn into its hem. Every item on a grocery shelf will have stuck to it, or embedded within itself, a button of silicon. There are 10 trillion objects manufactured in the world each year, and the day will come when each one of them will carry a flake of silicon."
