  • Nintendo invested 140 million dollars into R&D in 2002, twice the federal government spending on education innovation.

  • The number of text messages sent daily exceeds the population of the planet.
  • More than 3000 books are published daily
  • A week of the New York Times contains more new information than the average 18th century person read in a lifetime.
  • About 1.5 exabytes (1.5 X 10^18) of new information will be generated this year, more than in the past 5000 years combined.
  • The amount of technical information is doubling every 2 years.
  • 1 out of 8 marriages now occur from people meeting online.
