Default Did you know...?

I came across this and thought that it was worth sharing, maybe SD&D material, but still pretty interesting and I can't be arsed with discussing the implications;

The first minute of that video is played in Powerpoint Presentation form at every other training I have been to in the last year. I had not seen all of it until you posted it so thank you.

The scariest one is probably that bit about Japan's Fiber optic cable. That is an insane amount of info being pushed through it.

I don't really find any of that very scary and don't see why I should. I don't expect the States to be #1 in everything... Of course that's regarding the first minute or so which is about countries like China and India. The rest is just numbers on the success of modern technology.

694,000 illegal downloads!

Stick it to the man :rockon:

In all seriousness that was quite interesting. Like Lord Scythian said some that information is out there in other forms (I saw it in my Junior year Physics class) but not quite all of it.

I wasn't really that "scared" by any of it except that thing about a super computer with computational ability greater than the whole species (maybe).

I can't say I'm scared of the future, I would love to be able to illegally download 2660 CD's every second
