How Much Data Do We Produce? And How Much Is Spam?
from the an-awful-lot dept
A new study from a data storage company (watch the bias) says that we’re all creating more data more rapidly thanks to ever growing hard drives. There’s no indication how they worked this out, but they do seem to attribute quite a bit of that data growth to spam. There’s one weird bit, suggesting that by 2007 the average email will include a 650 kb attachment. Now, certainly that would increase the amount of data being sent around, but they give absolutely no basis for stating such a thing. Maybe they’re just counting virus spam and all the mess it causes, but it would seem that a claim that every email will soon be pushing that much data around should be supported by a bit more of an explanation.
