Bill Gates once said that 64kilobytes was more than enough storage space for anyone to store information. That was in the 1980s.
I know not what that judgement was based on, but definitely not based on the capacity of the human brain.
If our brain thinks in terms of words, then we’d think out easily a tens of thousands of words in a day. I don’t know about you, but my brain thinks more than words.
If our brain thinks in terms of pictures, we might save some space, coz a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, we only save space if we think a couple of tens of pictures. Again, I don’t know about you, but my brain thinks more than those couple of tens of pictures a day.
If our brain thinks in videos, motion pictures, with full surround sound and 3D effects,that’s a whole lot of information that needs to be stored. Imagine requiring one blu-ray disc to store one day’s worth of memory in this brain format.
So Bill Gates is wrong when he first took on computing.
Now he’s taking on philantrophy. Are we worried?
That was beating about the bush.
Point is this. There’s so much information that is processed and stored in our brain, that no web space would adequately capture it. Moreover a blog space like this, which is mainly words.
There’s just so much going on in my mind, especially lately. I find myself needing another outlet.
