161 exabytes of data

OK... I'll admit it. I subscribe to Kim Komando's Daily News column. And for the reason. Today I was directed to this article that says, "Add it all up and IDC determined that the world generated 161 billion
gigabytes – 161 exabytes – of digital information last year."

Wheeeeeeee ooooooooooo! That's a heap of data. But it's causing problems. Read about it here: http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/tech/20070305-1529-informationexplosion.html

UPDATE: 161 exabytes, plus about another couple hundred for THIS post. :-)
