Rate of growth of information = Moore's law

Interesting relationship noted in this post from Kelly's Technium blog. The rate of information growth in the world has been determined to be approximately 66% per year. When extrapolated, this rate corresponds directly to Moore's law in terms of circuit complexity (in terms of minimum component cost) doubling every 18 months.
