Data

I rendered a scale of information in terms of "bits." It was easy to find the number of bits that fit on a hard disk, or the bytes in the Library of Congress. But what about the information we get from a sideways glance, or a fleeting glimpse of pain on our beloved's face? I would like to find a way to include those types of information as well.



Some say data amounts and speed is increasing so fast (due to Moore's law and other factors) that we are heading for a singularity. To discuss it, please head over to the scalometer wiki.
