Two tweets from Asymco‘s Horace Dediu can cover a lot of ground.

To read details, click on a tweet and blow up its chart. For a couple of benchmarks, USA is eight from the bottom in the top (civilizations) chart and iPhone (well, smartphone) is seven from the top in the bottom (technologies) chart.

My take: Nothing lasts forever, but things last shorter now.
