Our collective memory increase is exponential

In the prehistoric times, before language, our brains were the only memory storage units. What we learnt, we stored it in our brains individually.

The language flowered and we began to share data and store it in each other’s brains.

After thousands of years, writing was invented and we began to make rocks and then papers our memory devices.

That continued on till the printing press where we accelerated the storage of data on paper.

Now we are living in another explosive data storage growth for humans. We have now figured out to store humungous data in compact space called hard drives.

Each time we have found a way to store and share more data, our world has gone through a revolution.

Imagine what the future will be…
