Fantastic video on the progression of information technology, researched by Karl Fisch, Scott McLeod, and Jeff Bronman, remixed. I actually thought I posted this video previously, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Even if I did, it’s worth taking another look.
The concept of the video is to throw out statistics at you which are shocking, enlightening, or just plain make you think. For example:
- If you are one in a million in China, there are 1,300 of you.
- The number of text messages sent daily exceeds the population of Earth.
- By 2013 supercomputers will be more powerful than the human brain.
So, what are we to make of all this?
Thanks to Mike Mitchell for sending this vid my way!
