Google Apocalypse/Google Topia
Google apocalypse • The internet now has over 1.94 billion websites (and counting). • 500 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube EVERY SINGLE MINUTE. • The rate at which we generate INFORMATION is something never before seen in human history. • And we consume more information than ever before, too. • The average American consumes 34 gigabytes worth of content a day, including a whopping 100,000 words of information and Millennial content consumption can be up to 18 HOURS per day. WE ARE LITERALLY DROWNING IN INFORMATION… BOMBARDED BY IT EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY, EVEN AS WE SLEEP... You could say we’re “hooked”, and it’s not making us happier, healthier, richer, or more fulfilled. It's just the opposite. Cases of depression have ballooned almost 20% in a decade, making depression the leading cause of disability worldwide. The “GoogleTopia” that we were promised, where all of this information would make the world a better place and improve people’s lives… never actually materialized.
