The world created 3,892,179,868,480,350,000,000 (or almost 4 sextillion) bits of new digital information in 2008, translating to about 487 billion gigabytes, or the equivalent of more than 162 trillion digital photos or 4.8 quadrillion online bank transactions.
Contrary to popular belief, as the economy deteriorated in late 2008, the pace of digital information created and transmitted over the internet, phone networks and airwaves actually increases.
The digital universe will double in size every 18 months: in 2012, five times as much digital information is expected to be created compared to that in 2008 Over the next four years.
The number of information-generation technologies and interactions are expected to increase dramatically
Mobile users are projected to grow three times.
600 million more people are expected to become internet users.
Non-traditional IT devices such as wireless meters, automobile navigation systems, industrial machines, RFID readers and intelligent sensor controllers are projected to grow 3.6 times.
Interactions between people via email, messaging, social networks, etc, will grow 8 times.
