How Much Data And Content Is Being Generated Right Now?

The Internet In Real Time” is a must see for anyone who has pondered this question.  If there is any doubt that making films NOW is something entirely different from THEN (aka before the internet), “The Internet In Real Time” should demonstrate that we are in the Era Of Distraction.  Or  is the Time Of Abundance Culture?
