Massive increase in words consumed

Donald Clark, Plan B, Jan 06, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some people may be sceptical, but I say consuming 6,000 trillion more words must have an impact. In 1980, we consumed 4,500 trillion words. In 2008, that number was 10,850 trillion words. That must have some impact. You can't simply say, "oh, the words weren't in print, and they weren't deep, so (magically!) there's no effect."
