According to The Micro Focus Blog:

90% of the data on the internet has been created since 2016, according to an IBM Marketing Cloud study. People, businesses, and devices have all become data factories that are pumping out incredible amounts of information to the web each day.

It’s probably not since the days of the Italian Renaissance – between the 14th and 17 centuries – that the idea of a Renaissance Man (or Woman) knowing it all was thought feasible – but come on man, it was never even true back then.


So Be a SmartPhone Smarty Instead

Or use whatever device you’ve got.
