"Price's Law says that half of the contributions in a field come from the square root of the number of contributors. In other words, productivity increases linearly as the number of contributors increases exponentially." This is incorrect; the square root of an exponential is still an exponential... it's just exp(0.5 * x) rather than exp(x).
