LIke a 1.2 billion pound book

billion
This image is from a blog post at CreativeCloud. There are several other related facts, such as: If you printed the internet reading it would take 57,000 years 24/7. Reading it for 10 minutes a night before bed would take 8,219,088 years.

The post is archived in CreativeCloud’s “fun” category. I would nominate it also for the “astounding” category, if there were one. Except for a very few pages passed back and forth among university computers, the stuff in this 1.2 billion pound book has all been created from scratch in about 15 years in a digital medium less than 50 years old.
