Some Big Data Factoids.

The following informational tidbits on the creation of user generated "Big Data" were picked up at the EMC announcement last week.

• More texts per day are generated than people on the planet.
• Facebook users upload 2Bil photographs each month.
• Every minute, 20 minutes of video is uploaded onto YouTube.
• 4.2M closed circuit cameras in the UK – one for every 14 people. Note: there are 25 cameras within a block radius of George Orwell’s house – Orwellian or what!!!

If you enjoy the type of stuff and looking for more, check out my Storage Visions blog.
