In many cases, it's impossible to get totally accurate numbers.But at least you'll have some idea of exactly what we're dealing with here.More techie tips: https://scottiestech.info
By the way...greetings from nr 5 (Romania) in terms of internet speed ! 70Mbps wireless and 120 wired on one of the cheapest home connection of about 8$/month. You can go full 1000Mbps for 12$/month. Anyway, count me in as one of your subscribers, hope you'll get closer to that 22 mil $ ! :))))
Anyone can guide me to get any scholarship to pursue a master degree in Big Data Specialist?!

Stats like this aren't easy to put into perspective. It's really an quantity of data that is better compared to the distance to other stars in light years. Most people just can't comprehend it.
I love your animated gestures. It makes all of your videos entertaining. Did you cover the yottabyte? It is the Utah, U. S. reoported server size for the NSA.
165 liked. 0 dislikes. 65 y o going to go for 165 yrs.
Thanks, Scottie, for explaining that the best you can. I liked the wrap up at the end. "It's all pretty nuts."
These exercises in comparing intangibles with tangibles are helpful for many reasons. My first instinct is to think "Wow! Google is awesome. They have an extraordinary resource requirement and through the innovative techniques and their concern for the environment, we are getting a lot of free stuff!" But then common sense settles in and I realize that nothing is "free." Then I remember: “There are three types of lies -- lies, damn lies, and statistics.” ― Benjamin DisraeliNot you Scottie! I'm not trying to rag on you. I mean, I know that your information is correct, but I'm referring to is the inferences that can be reasonably expected from the data leaked by Google. There is no benefit to Google to keep this information hidden so why must you seek it in order to make comparisons that make Google look altruistic and even philanthropic?Google obfuscates the real costs by giving a "wash" scenario where they say the use X many of units and own X many units so we just swap this for that. Whaaa? Apples and oranges and not kwh per kwh. Additionally, everyone knows that "Renewables" can only survive with subsidies. They are taking Government kickbacks to operate a business that requires fossil fuels complements of us the taxpayers.
They realy are desperate for our info to go though all of this .Its not the speed of it that matters , it what they " do " with it .
Thanks Scotty, thanks Cloetus. I belly-laughed at "Clearly I am making the wrong type of video"!
Great report, Scottie!
Here in Brazil we have to pay a huge amount of money for a 10 mbps speed. In my mind, a 60 mbps connection is something insane.
Scotty, I live right next to a 1.2 Billion Dollar Facebook data center. Here is a brief explanation of Big Data's "Renewable Energy" scam. Years ago the Feds and the State mandated that sizeable percentage of Electricity come from Renewable Energy Sources, so the power companies began building solar and wind farms which were paid for by their customers. Big Data comes along and brokers a deal with the power company to buy "Only Renewable Energy" at the current rate plus a volume discount, which under the deal cannot be raised for 20 plus years (because as we know the Solar and Wind Farms are already paid for). However, as electrical generation costs go up each year, the entire increase will be paid for by regular customers i.e. small home and business owners.
