The Internet is Even Busier That it Was Last Year: eDiscovery Trends

About this time last year, I published (or re-published, if you will) a terrific infographic that illustrated what happens within the internet in a typical minute in 2016.  Since I will be part of a panel discussion at The Master’s Conference in San Francisco next Tuesday and the topic will be big data and data discovery, I thought it would be good to take a fresh look at what happens in a 2017 internet minute!

This updated graphic, created by Lori Lewis, illustrates what happens within the internet in a typical minute in 2017.  There are several different categories tracked in this graphic than the one we referenced last year, so it’s interesting to see what’s tracked this year.  For the categories that are the same, they are all (not surprisingly) up, compared to last year – some more than others.  More data to manage within organizations and during litigations, investigations and audits than ever!  Here is the graphic again, full sized:

They say a picture says a thousand words, so consider my blog post complete for today!  :o)
