We live in exponential times! There were roughly one thousand devices connected to the Internet in 1984. Eight years later (1992) there were over a million. In 2009 this number was over a billion.
It took 38 years for 50 million people to have a radio. This was an amazing way to share information without having to read a newpaper. Then came TV which did it in 13 years. Over 50 million iPods sold in 3 years and Facebook took 2 years for their first 50 million users. Google’s “response” to Facebook is Google+ and they hit 50 million users in only 88 days.
Today if you want to learn about breaking news, you don’t turn on the radio or TV, you check out Twitter!
