Ok, my concern is that silicon may be running out of room.  Now if we 
all just put on our happy faces, and use GaAs, we can go much faster. 
Yeah, it has some issues ...  But think of how much faster we can be. 
(that and my thesis work might suddenly have applicability, but that is 
another matter).

More seriously, our computing industry can build silicon really well. 
As it keeps shrinking problems arise.  Some of these problems can be 
ameliorated by doing a material paradigm shift.  But our computing 
industry does silicon really well ...
