Gone in 60 seconds!

The internet has become huge, gigantic, humungous and whatever you may want to call it; as you will see in this infographic covering the latest statistics on things that happen on the internet every 60 seconds! A minute might not seem like much in the life of the Internet, but this infographic busts that myth and shows you just how much happens in just 60 seconds.


Before we head into the facts and figures, here a little brief about the Internet itself. It has revolutionized the computer and communications world like nothing ever before. But did you know that the Internet today is a widespread information infrastructure, the initial prototype of what is often called the National (or Global or Galactic) Information Infrastructure? Did you know that the first recorded description of the social interactions that could be enabled through networking was a series of memos written by J.C.R. Licklider of MIT in August 1962 discussing his ‘Galactic Network’ concept. He envisioned a globally interconnected set of computers through which everyone could quickly access data and programs from any site. In spirit, the concept was very much like the Internet of today. Hmmm, interesting, isn’t it?!
