Scary scary numbers

In my last entry I wrote about the UCB "How Much Information" study, and how we created 5 exabytes of new information in 2002.

Reading through the report in more depth while working on an article on data storage, backup and archiving, I discovered a rather scary number. Five exabytes is all the words ever spoken by human beings.
