New data formats will have to be invented. New ways of storing data so that you can compress huge amounts into nano scale. It’s the only way the world will be able to sustain the exponential spurt of consumer uploads and sharing. People don’t think about it but the servers are not infinite. Something will have to give and soon. The age of the data junkie could come crashing down. Plus the power consumption problem is getting crazier. It’s time man discover a new more sustainable power source. Oil won’t cut it forever. The future might be a bleak energy pinching dystopian fatigue where we grip our energy close to our chest and sleep with one eye open always.
