Do you know what your digital footprint is? This infographic breaks down the digital footprints created by each generation. We are some Internet addicts!
You’ve heard of a carbon footprint, but did you know you have a digital footprint also? A digital footprint is related to how you interact in a digital environment. This includes everything from watching a traditional television to sending a text on your smartphone. This of courseincludes the compilation of all the data human beings generate online. When we start talking about data andhow much is created and stored, my brain turns to mush because it doesn’t make logical sense to me.
Science tells us that the entire Internet weighs as much as a strawberry; however, the amount of data stored online (if it was in the form of books) could stretch across the surface of the United States and China 15 times. In my brain, something that large should weigh more than a strawberry, and that is where my flawed human brain gets stuck. If you want to know what your data footprint is (I checked mine today), you can click over to a little quiz that will determine it for you on Cisco’s website at What Is Your Digital Footprint?. It told me I’m a super-user. No shocker there.
This infographic called Data Footprints By Generations by Wikibon breaks down the data footprints created by each generation alive today. I notice they didn’t include little kids though. If a 5-year-old watches a video on television or on an iPad, doesn’t that count as a digital footprint? I think they should be included on this list. What I found to be the most staggering stat is that from the beginning of time until 2003, humans generated 5 billion gigabytes worth of data. Today, we generate that much data every two days. In a year from now, we will generate that much data every ten minutes. What will it be like in 10 years from now? Doesn’t it seem like at some point it would get full? Science is full of mystery and wonder. I bet if someone who lived back in the 1800s looked at our lives now, that person would think we already live in a science fiction world. In a way, we do.
Many of us simply don't get enough sleep each and every night. Your body may be able to handle it for a while but your performance will start to drop if you

Creating an app is a dream that many people ponder. However, the app creation process is anything but a simple one. Have a look at the process here.
In order to create a successful app, there are a lot of factors to consider that have to be just right. Timing is one of those factors, and as far as I know, there is no one who really knows how to determine when the right time is. Sure, there are some people who have a better sense of it than others, but if someone could perfectly pinpoint it each and every time…well, let’s just say that such a person would be quite valuable. So, back to app creation. How do you create a really successful app, and what are the ingredients for it? First of all, you need to have a good idea. It need to be an idea that appeals to the millions and millions of people who are browsing the Internet andapp stores around the world. Then it’s just to begin the app creation process and live happily ever after, right? Not exactly.
There is a lot more that goes into it than that. In order to create a great concept like Angry Birds or even an application that helps us in our work, it takes careful planning and a whole lot of ingenuity. And that’s not to mention coding skills, designer skills and a whole lot of other skills. Once you are done with the app creation process, you can just launch it and hope for the best, right? Not even close.
You will have to make sure it reaches as many eyeballs as possible. This means you will have to make sure people write about it on their blogs and websites so those people and their readers will start talking about your app. Word-of-mouth is such a powerful marketing approach, and once your app goes viral, there is little else you will have to do. But remember, that is after the whole app creation process is completed. And to get there, you will have to spend weeks, if not months, coding and designing in order to finish a publishable version.
Does it sound like a tedious process? Yeah, by any extent of the imagination it is. And this doesn’t even cover one tenth of what the process is really like. You will stumble over bugs and features that don’t work as you intended them to because of API updates. And don’t forget that the features you can find on an iPhone 5 don’t even come close to what exists on an iPhone 3. So as you might understand, just the app creation process alone is enough to make anyone abandon any thought of putting together an app in hopes of becoming rich.
In a fresh infographic presented by Frédéric Descamps, French app developer and astronomer, we get an inside look at the app creation process from someone who has been through every step of it. Mr. Descamps launched hisStarmap app when the App Store was first launched, and he found his app at the top of the charts. He managed to capitalize on it, and today his company has grown to employ over 12 people. So if you are determined to succeed in undertaking this app creation process then by all means go ahead. Just know that the process won’t be fast, simple or forgiving. You will have to work hard and solve a lot of problems before you can even start evaluating whether or not your hard work brought something back. In most cases, it will just barely earn you enough to make the moneyback that you invested. But don’t give up! Take a gander at this app creation process infographic and get inspired! Once you come up with that super brilliant idea, there is no telling what success you could be headed for. Happy brainstorming!
