How Much Information? 2003

“We estimate that the amount of new information stored on paper, film, magnetic, and optical media has about doubled in the last three years. Information explosion? We estimate that new stored information grew about 30% a year between 1999 and 2002. Paperless society? The amount of information printed on paper is still increasing, but the vast majority of original information on paper is produced by individuals in office documents and mail, not in formally published titles such as books, newspapers and journals.” (School of Information Management & SystemsUniversity of California at Berkeley)
