The incredible pricing graph for digital storage.
The other day someone (sorry I lost the link) tweeted a string of numbers showing how the price of one gigabyte of storage had changed since 1987. It is simply astounding, checkout my graphical version below.
I remember my first computer had a hundred something megabytes (it was the time of floppy disks!) and I thought I was set for life. I mean how could I possibly fill up THAT MUCH SPACE!
I have a 32 gb thumb drive in my pocket right now. Crazy.
PS: In case you needed a reminder.... the quantity of data has zero correlation to the quality of data (and even less to the insights you might be able to extract from it - for now, humans still rule at this last one!). #technology #evolution #bigdata
