Quotable quotes

Posted on: November 15, 2015

Change happens and often we appreciate to what extent only in hindsight.

For example, the photo above features a high density floppy disk that could hold just 1.2MB of data. The same photo, taken in 2007, also shows a microSD card that holds 2GB of data. Today microSD cards that hold 64 or 128GB of data are commonplace.

In 1956, a 5MB drive was the size of a piano. Now we can hold a 4TB pocket drive in the palm of our hand. In the not too distant future, we might use DNA to store data.

Change matters and it is difficult to see possibilities because we are creatures of limited vision.

Giving credit where it is due also matters. Here is the original CC-licensed photo with which I made this image quote.
