Shut down your internet for 60 seconds and here's a sampling of what you will miss:
- 1500+ blog posts
- 98,000 new tweets
- 12,000 new ads on Craigslist
- 20,000 new posts on Tumblr
- 600 new videos (25+ hours worth) on YouTube
The sheer volume of data being pumped across our series of tubes every minute is impressive, but you have to wonder how much of this data is just useless spam trying to sell you Viagra.
