How many ‘pages’ are added to the web each day ?

The mind has trouble coping with all the information that is thrown at it today.

Consider …

  • More information has been produced in the past 30 years than in the previous 5,000.
  • The total of all printed knowledge doubles every four or five years.
  • One weekday edition of The New York Times contains more information than the average person in 17th-century  England was likely to come across in a lifetime.
  • More than 4,000 books are published around the world every day.
  • The average white-collar worker uses 154 pounds of copy paper a year.
  • Every day the World Wide Web grows by 1 million electronic pages.
