100 Gigabit Ethernet

We're just getting to grips with ten-gig ethernet (and the plethora of copper & fibre connectors and standards!) and I notice the Ethernet Alliance are talking about the road to one-hundred gigabit. They have an interesting paper here and if you need a catch-up on where ethernet came from look at the slides of their history presentation.
