I was reading CRUNCHGEAR.COM.

The article I was intrigued by was about all the information that we consume. It was put together by the Global Information Industry of the University of California at San Diego.

It was based on 2008 data, exploring US consumers and consumption of social media data as well as TV , newspapers, etc. The key take aways for me were:

1. Americans consume about 34 Gigabytes of information a day.

2. We spend about 12 hours a day

3. Old media (TV, newspaper etc) makes up 60% of the information.

4. The average person spends 2 hours a day on the computer (ummmm….)

5. 100,000 words are read each day.
