The World Wide Web As The Junk Yard!!
Looking at the global Google search patterns,as published in Google Zeitgeist,I was surprised to find that 99% of the top queries listed therein was never ever tried by me in the last several years –As a power user of the internet and search engines –particularly Google & Yahoo – I realized that the internet is hosting so much of junk and users literally search against absolutely nil value items. Not that all listed in google’s zeitgeist is junk though – I would leave it to the readers to judge on that count. We recently covered, on the topic The Total Information Available In The World wherein the size of the web was seen to be the equivalent of the Library of congress. Current estimates of the number of Internet users run in the tens of millions, perhaps 50 M, and this might grow to one billion; thus a factor of twenty is available by increasing the number of people on the Web. If assuming that people put more and more of their life online best estimated to be a factor of 20.This suggests that the amount of Ascii on the Web might increase to 800 terabytes. If the web is like this, the enteprise level scenario is no different.
