One Minute on the Internet


In March 2012, Intel released the following infographic which shows a graphical view of Internet activities in one minute. It is interesting to know what happens in 60 seconds on the Internet.  According to Intel, this is what happens in one minute on Internet:

  • 640,000 GB of global IP data transferred
  • 20 New Victims of identity theft
  • $83,000 sales conversions
  • 61,141 hours of music served by Pandora
  • 100,000 new tweets
  • 204 million emails sent
  • 6 new Wikipedia articles get published
  • 1300 new mobile users are added
  • 2+ million Google search queries
  • More than 100 LinkedIn accounts created
  • 277,000 logins and 6 million page views happen on Facebook
  • YouTube serves 1.3 million videos
  • 30 hours of video uploaded on YouTube
  • 20 million photos are viewed on Flickr
  • 47,000 apps downloaded
  • More than 320 new Twitter accounts are created

This is an amazing list.  Currently, the number of networked devices on Internet is equal to the human population. In 2015, the number is predicted to be nearly doubled. Also, it will take you 5 years to watch videos that will circulate through Internet in just one second! With these being said, can you imagine what will happen without Internet for a day?

    我想這份報導可說是針對現在目前使用網路的手機(移動化裝置)和平板電腦的使用者調查居多,所以可以無時無刻、任何地點、任何地方做網路瀏覽與通訊,甚至運用電腦或行動裝置與網路中與客戶做溝通以及朋友聊天、傳簡訊,都是迅速又立即的反應出現在自己的電腦前端;這也顯示資訊科技的發展真的不是依照研究進度來執行,似乎跟著商業行為更蓬勃發展。因為有太多廠商為了爭奪資訊科技的龍頭,讓研發部門努力在實現未來世界的無紙化、提倡環保、節約能源的新環境;這應該是它的優點;但仍令人擔憂地就如老師所言,如果有一天整個網路世界瓦解的時候,人類能夠做些甚麼應變或者如何打發每天的時間。如果是60年代的大人,我想早期生活模式是在無電腦的環境下生存,應該是可以調適自己的生活步調。而今90年代以後出生的新生代開始,從國小開始就有機會接觸電腦與網路,真得遇到電腦網路大當機時,就如遇到日本海嘯災難的無助。不過我相信人類的長處,應該就是適者生存,人類的學習力、毅力、耐力都是值得肯定的基本能力。
