Jeremy Keith - All Our Yesterdays
Did you know that our new (relatively) global, internet society creates a total of five exabytes of data every two days? To put the enormity of that into perspective, that means that every two days we create more data (blog posts, comments, text messages... yes, data!) than in the history of mankind through roughly 2003. It's mind numbing.
When we consider all the data that is being generated by our global networks, is it any wonder that so much of it just disappears? This lecture by well known web designer, Jeremy Keith, talks about this data that drops into the "memory hole" every day and how we can handle this data loss through archiving and forward thinking. It's nerdy, dare we say, brainy stuff. But it's also extremely fascinating.
