Taking in the info-flood


by Ann Treacy • Thanks to Mary Treacy for passing this video on to me. I don’t always make time for video but like Mary, I thought this one was worth sharing. It tracks the progression of information technology.

Blandin on Broadband offers information on broadband use, access, and trends especially in rural Minnesota. Sponsored by the Blandin Foundation and their Broadband Initiative.

The factoids that caught my attention:

1. The top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004.
2. It took Facebook 2 years to reach a market audience of 50 million.
3. A week’s worth of NY Times is more info than someone would find in a lifetime in the 18th century.

I hope the schools are preparing my kids for this!
