OMG! I never thought about the internet data from this perspective. It's a really interesting post and I am looking forward to tell my friend about it. The numbers are so fabulous that when I think about backup data solutions I just panic.

How did they come up with this number? Maybe I'm blind but I didn't see an answer to that question.

I think you guys are looking at it the wrong way the internet is the back up of the majority of the data because I do not know anyone who deletes the original copy of the files they post online.

shit compared to the amount of money the government owes. I say government because *WE* the people are no longer in control, and haven't been for a while. So if the government wants to run itself into the ground, I say let it.

 500 billion gigabytes.. hrmm... that equates to what... a holyshitwtfbbqbyte?

I say you probably can pile up a 100 times the length from here to pluto with pennies from the national debt.

Thanks to Comcast and Warner we can't access much of that, so what's the point?
