Shift Happens Statistic of the Day

According to the Google Blog, the number of web pages in the Google Index:

              26,000,000 in 1998
        1,000,000,000 in 2000
1,000,000,000,000 in 2008 (July) . . . and growing by "several billion" every day.

Perhaps we do live in exponential times . . .

  1. Karl, an interesting statistic. I wonder if the human race will suffer from 'information warming' in the same way that the planet is seemingly afflicted by 'global warming'?
    Will someone ever come along and simply switch the human race off?
    Cheers, John.
