Shift Happens Video

Found this very interesting video presenting a bunch of facts about how fast our world is changing. Can you even really conceive of where we will be or what we will be doing in the future.
Some of the stats from the video below:

  • The top 10 jobs that will be in demand in 2010 did not exist in 2004
  • 1 out of every 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met online
  • There are 106 million registered users of MySpace. If MySpace were a country it would be number 11th largest in the world (between Japan and Mexico)
  • It is estimated that 1.5 exabytes of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year. That’s estimated to be more than in the last 5,000 years…
  • There are 2.7 Billion searches performed on Google every month. To whom were these questions addressed before Google?
  • The number of text messages sent and received every day exceeds the population of the planet.
