    TSMC's 2021 Technology Symposium was its usual technical tour-de-force, in which its executives laid out a 2-to-3-year roadmap for its customers to plan their product development. Overall, they provided technological proof of what I recently wrote, that it is the Hope Diamond of the Semiconductor Industry when it comes to geopolitics...TSMC kicked off with this in Dave Keller's talk about how the COVID-19 pandemic had accelerated technology adoption...
    The challenge this growth will present to the power grid was also noted. The growth in power consumption can only be mitigated with more power efficient semiconductors, which was a beautiful segue into TSMC's new process offerings. Number one was C.C. Wei's doubling down on Moore's Law and PPACt, which he said is essential to controlling data center power consumption in this decade. You could tell he is personally committed to making it happen...Number two is to deliver on TSMC's promise to be the trusted capacity supplier, for which they will spend $100B over the next 3-years, with ~$30B planned for 2021, which is...
