Taking in the Exaflood

Thanks to Mary Treacy for passing this video on to me. I don’t always make time for video but like Mary, I thought this one was worth sharing. It tracks the progression of information technology. The factoids that caught my attention:

  1. The top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004.
  2. It took Facebook 2 years to reach a market audience of 50 million.
  3. A week’s worth of NY Times is more than a lifetime of info someone would find in a lifetime in the 18th century.

I hope the schools are preparing my kids for this!

  1. This is certainly sobering — how do any of us keep up? (I had to turn off the music in order to take in the text — my inability to multitask is probably a clue to my question).
