Check this video out -- 2008 Latest Edition - Did You Know 3.0 - From Meeting in Rome this Year:


The figures about people and technology in this five minute clip are astounding. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts.

Some amazing numbers in there.  I'm curious about the "pieces of new information generated this year"  --  how do they measure that?  Are they also counting new ways of combining existing information?

Don't tell my son the part about his college education being outdated before he even finishes.  It's going to be hard enough just to make him go.

Well, that's a really good question. I'd love to know the criteria used to obtain a lot of the information. But whether the data is strictly accurate or note, the bottom line is that the world is changing far faster than any of us can keep up. So, I'm not going to stress over it, I hope. ???

LOL. My daughter's starting third year university in Sept. I'm not even telling her about this clip. ;D
