Intel reveals what happens in a single Internet minute

Intel reveals what happens in a single Internet minute

If the Internet is a series of tubes, then those tubes are jam-packed. An Intel infographic shows all the amazing things that happen in just one minute on the Internet.

Internet Minute infographic

Looks like the Internet is pretty busy. (Click on image to enlarge.)

The Internet is a busy place. Usually, we’re all just puttering along online, watching silly cat videos, checking e-mail, and occasionally getting some work done. If you truly were to comprehend everything happening on the Internet at any given moment, it would drive you mad, much like Bowman in “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“The thing’s hollow–it goes on forever–and–oh my God–it’s full of Internets!”

Fortunately, Intel has broken down what happens in an Internet minute into an easy-to-digest infographic. First, let’s look at the big-daddy number. Every minute, 639,800GB of global IP data is transferred. That’s a little hard to really wrap the mind around, so let’s get into some of the telling details.

In a single minute of Internet time, 204 million e-mails are sent. Online denizens view 20 million photos on Flickr. Twitter processes 100,000 new tweets and 320 new Twitter accounts are created. That’s more than five new Twitter users per second. No wonder it’s so hard to keep up with all that tweeting.

If you thought Twitter was busy, then check out the stats for YouTube. An Internet minute is filled with 30 hours of videos uploaded and 1.3 million video views (most of which probably involved “Gangnam Style” last year). Social media is certainly popular. Though people might say they’re taking time-outs from Facebook, there are still 6 million Facebook views and 277,000 logins every minute.

At least Wikipedia is taking it easy, with six new articles published each minute. So what does all this mean? It means the Internet is crazy popular. Intel says the number of networked devices out there is equal to the world’s population. We’re definitely putting all those devices to use.

This data also may make us wonder a bit about the future. As the number of devices continues to rise, will our Internet infrastructure be able to keep up? Intel expects the number of networked devices to be double the world’s population by 2015. At least we still will be limited by the number of hands and eyes we have available at any given time.

Amazing Site Gets You Up To Speed On Any Subject

Amazing Site Gets You Up To Speed On Any Subject.

You need to find out everything about Nigeria.  Or glass.  Or woodpeckers.  Or Einstein.  Or pianos.  And you need to do it relatively quickly.  Maybe because your boss asked you, or perhaps your school teacher.  Either way, you’d probably start by Googling it, wouldn’t you?

If so, here’s a different method, and one which might actually be better too.

Head to and type in the word or phrase you need to know about.  In a couple of seconds, up comes a mindmap-style diagram with the keywords you need, and the right-hand panel shows links to relevant web pages.  Click on one of the mindmap nodes and things get even more detailed.  

In the screen shot below, I’ve started by searching for information about CPUs, and then clicked on the Chips node in the first diagram.

Try it, and grok something new today.
