What Happens In An Internet Minute? SPOILER: A Lot


From geekology, This is an informational graphic from Intel showing some of the things that happen in a single minute of internet time. I was honestly surprised that some figures were as low as they were. Only 20 identities stolen? Those aren't the Nigerian scammers I know! Not included on the list: 80,000 moms forward spam emails, 30 dudes sign into Chatroulette with the intention of showing their dongs, my roommate maxes out our bandwidth downloading porn and brings my internet connection to a crawl, enough Viagra to pop a 1,000-year boner is purchased, and like five million people read Geekologie. "Five-million, really?" You heard me, five-million -- like a five with two zeros.

Did you see me? I was one of the Google searches.

I was sorting through some old model kits last week, and I found the info sheet for a teensy company making garage-kit models of Star Trek ships. And you know what? No web site! How did we live?
