A Tale of Two Curves: Data & Analysts

“In 2011, Americans took in five times as much information every day as they did in 1986 — the equivalent of 174 newspapers. During our leisure time, not counting work, each of us processes 34 gigabytes, or 100,000 words, every day. The world’s 21,274 produce 85,000 hours of original programming every day as we watch an average of 5 hours of television daily, the equivalent of 20 gigabytes of audio-video images. That’s not counting Youtube, which uploads 6,000 hours of video every hour.”*
