..Today's fun fact!

It took 300,000 years for the human race to accumulate 12 exabytes of information, where an exabyte is a billion gigabytes - 1018 bytes. The University of California in Berkley estimates that 250 megabytes of data are created each year for each man, woman, and child on the planet - a further exabyte or so a year!

That was in 2000.

At this rate (taking into account growth rates), we will equal the amount of data produced sometime not long after 2005...
