That digital stuff.
The "ones and noughts" stuff.
Data - that stuff that's always in the wrong place
Data is the stuff that always needs moving to somewhere else
That stuff on your phone
if it's on your phone 
you want it in the cloud
if it's on the cloud
you want it on your phone!

Analysing - that data!

The human race isn't going to be wiped out by pestulance and flood
we are going to be wiped out by the amount of data we are generating
It is said that the amount of data there is in the world now is one "Zettabyte"
A word I've never heard of
so I Googled it!

"The Zettabyte" - a unit of information equal to one sextillion (1021) or... 270 bytes.

Nowadays it's a case of how many terrabytes would you like?
There are Terrabyte USB pens
Terrabyte Micro SD cards the size of your fingernail
...forget your Terrabyte
this thing makes a Terrabyte 
look like an empty crisp packet!

So why all this space?
I blame social media!
It's all photos and videos
Who hasn't got 50 or 60 gigs of photos and videos on their mobile!
I have!
We have to photograph everything then send it to 500 of our so-called "friends"
All that data!
All that data we are sending round the planet
All that data having to be stored somewhere
being uploaded
being downloaded 
All that data being transferred 

YouTube has an "Exabyte" of data on it!
There you go - another word no-ones heard of!
It's a million terrabytes!

1 million terrabytes of 
how to mend a...
how to correct a faulty...
why is my...
what is this symbol on my...

and don't forget the...
"this is what I had for my tea!

It's going to be the death of us!
