A Revolution is Coming: Information 2.0. All of us in IT talk about how much information has been growing over the past decade. Now, a new white paper from IDC tells us that information growth will actually accelerate over the next few years. IDC predicts that the amount of information created and replicated annually will increase sixfold from 2006 to 2010. This translates to 988 exabytes of information in 2010!

A Revolution is Coming: Information 2.0

All of us in IT talk about how much information has been growing over the past decade. Now, a new white paper from IDC tells us that information growth will actually accelerate over the next few years. IDC predicts that the amount of information created and replicated annually will increase sixfold from 2006 to 2010. This translates to 988 exabytes of information in 2010!

Given the amount and new types of information we will produce in the future, we need to completely change how we think about information. Access to information in the future, I believe, will be flat, deep, and specialized.

Flat access simply means that the conduits to obtain information will be very direct. YouTube is a perfect example. With just a single intermediary, you can publish video for direct consumption worldwide to anyone with a network connection. There is no longer a filter or limited set of outlets for access to consumers of information.
