The amount of data we are creating as society has exploded over the last decade. Consider this fact: Each day, we create more than 70 times the amount of information in the Library of Congress. Or this one: Approximately 2.5 billion Internet users generate 2.5 quintillion (2,500,000,000,000,000,000) bytes of data every day. Why are we producing so much data? Because we can.
