There was a popular video that circulated 4 years ago about the progression of information technology. This video I am showing is the 2012 updated version.
It takes 5 minutes to watch this video…wait until you have the time to view this, as once you start watching…you won’t be able to stop yourself from watching the rest!
So what does this all mean … The future, our future is right here right now…in our hands! Up to us!
Thanks for stopping by,

It is almost too much to wrap my head around. I had not seen this video 4 years ago so very glad that you shared it Penny.
i completely agree! this just blows my mind! and the part about making a computer in 2049 thats smarter than the entire human species…. its almost scary.
staggering figures and concepts… I wish they’d answered the last question!!!!!
Yes, Valerie, I agree. Unfortunate that!
Fascinating facts and figures… I think I saw the original when it first came out. The number of babies being born is quite incredible and always amazes me…
We are prolific at some things aren’t we (we as in generic for humans lol)!
AnElephantCant help thinking
That his brain is about to catch fire
We have come a long way
Since that long ago day
When 5 computers were all that were required
But these numbers are truly mind-numbing
It is too much for him to comprehend
The question to ask
Are we up to the task
Where on earth is it all going to end
Remarkable stats, Penny.
Which suggest to this not too bright pachyderm that none of us can possibly have any idea what is going to be the next big thing to change our world.
Scary biscuits? For sure.
Food for thought.
I’m guessing peanuts is a good thing! Also they already have the next concept in the works (I shared this with another blogger just the other day, I recently read a paper from Stanford U. re: optimizing virtual applications, with less physical hardware, that’s a pretty good mind stagger-er I think!:)
Reblogged this on Alastair's Blog and commented:
As Penny says – make sure you have time to watch this. It is incredible.
You’re welcome. One of them that definitely needed sharing 🙂
I am gobsmacked!!! Exobyte … that’s huge.
That information is out of this world,
Too cool, huh!
Have you seen this video.

RHYTHM-CRASH ACID 5 AND THE ANGLES WHO CUT THEMSELVES SHAVING
Swing by…and give us feedback…I gave it a title.:)
So what does it all mean? It means life is changing. True, the rate and the volume of change are changing, but change is change, to assign measurements to change is to deny its nature.
I believe the biggest element of “it all” is that it is increasingly difficult for people to deny change. As a species our illusion of permanence is being dispelled. The Buddhists call this entering reality.
So what does this all mean? It means that some humans will not experience much change in “it all”, and some will. As always, this will depend on each individual’s relationship with reality.
Precisely Bob, yes indeed, it will and I hope to nudge just a few more in the same direction … just a few!
You are then a reality nudger? A true optimist. I thought the 1 in 8 relationships starting in the internet statistic was interesting. There may be hope for me yet.
I think there should always be hope, always bob!
