Timeline of the far future | Cool Media | Scoop.it

From BBC Future:

What do we expect will happen in one thousand years time? Or one million years? Or even one billion? As our amazing timeline shows, there may be trouble ahead.

First, we brought you a prediction of the forthcoming year. Then we brought you a timeline of the near future, revealing what could happen up to around 100 years time. But here’s our most ambitious set of predictions yet – from what could happen in one thousand years time to one hundred quintillion years (that’s 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 years)...

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic]

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic] | Cool Media | Scoop.it

In 2012, that number has gone through the roof: There are now 2.27 billion users, or 33% of the world’s population.

When managing massive amounts of data, the scales were talking about can quickly reach astronomical proportions. Recent efforts to quantify big data have produced interesting results. A recent infographic from clearCi is one such effort, outlining the scale of data produced on the Internet each day: 2.5 quintillion bytes of data...
