Ever wonder about the volume of communication the Internet enables? One designer, Steven Lewis, decided to bring this volume to life in a representative graphic that shows you that volume in ‘One Second on the Internet.’
Lewis contrasts this real-time perspective with that of the Internet’s history, writing: “10 years ago Skype, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Dropbox and Instagram didn’t exist. 20 years ago there were only 130 websites total, Google wasn’t even around yet, and you had to pay for an email account through an ISP. 30 years ago there was no Internet.”
Many thanks to the Internet pioneers who have enabled this growth and innovation!
