Some things I learned yesterday from Intel about the Internet

Some very useful numbers contained in this presentation from Intel Capital. I have removed some ‘Intel Confidential’ information from this presentations but the numbers here do make you think. Download Intel Internet Slides pdf here.

Some other snippets of information while I am at it that came out of the conversation at our event yesterday:

  • 2007 was the first year that we produced more data in the world than we have the capacity to store.
  • In 2009, thanks largely to the rise of social networking, there was more data produced in the world than all previous year’s combined.
  • Zynga, producer of games for Facebook, is Pay Pal’s second largest customer globally.
