This animation presents several intuitive analogies that explain the growth and the current state of the world's technological capacity to store, communicate and compute information.

It is based on the article:
Martin Hilbert & Priscila López (2011). The World's Technological Capacity to Store, Communicate, and Compute Information. Science, 332(6025), 60-65.
http://http://www.sciencemag.org/cont... (accessible through http://www.martinhilbert.net/WorldInf...)

It was conceptualized, produced, and animated by Martin Hilbert, Gavin Wright, Stuart Allan, and Dan St. Pierre (www.proof-inc.com), with the support from The Economist and USC's Annenberg School of Communication.
