AyeBlog’s 2011 in review: I Did Stuff!

31 Dec

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.

State of the Internet

4 Mar

A cool new video with updated statistics about the Internet, social networking sites and usage, and how we’re still growing…

If you printed Twitter…

19 Jan

Wow. Just, wow. And it’s still growing.

These statistics certainly make a case for online media as “green” technology. Though it would be interesting to compare how much energy Twitter’s servers use and how much money and physical resources that energy output saves as compared to below.

Below are some statistic highlights, and here is the link to the full article on Mashable:

If you printed Twitter …

– … the seven billion tweets to date are composed of 104,860,000,000 words, as many as 133,000 copies of the the King James version of the Bible.

– … it would cover 350 million sheets of paper, which is 37 times the number of pages used in bills introduced in the United States Congress since 1955.

– … the paper would weigh three and a half million pounds, the equivalent of 82 school buses fully loaded with 84 happily tweeting kids.

– … and did nothing but read tweets throughout the entire work day, it would take 2,912 years to get through it.

– … and laid the pages end to end, they would stretch 60,763 miles or two and a half times around the earth.

– … on an average HP Inkjet printer, it would cost you $24,500,000 to print in black ink or $55,606,250 to include the Twitter blue.

– … keeping up with the 26 million tweets daily would require 30 inkjet printers working around the clock to print more than 1,300,000 pages every day.
