The idea for this posting got started last week when I started to archieve a lot of videos I have done and store them digitally. An average video package, or story you might say is about 1.5 minutes, to 3 minutes long. It will take about 500 megabytes to over a gigabyte of memory to store each one. In the past I have averaged about 80 video packages per year that I have shot. Part of my job is to also archieve all the other photographers videos that that they have shot also. That, is a lot of videos, and that is a lot of gigabytes. So I was thinking, we all know of kilobytes, megabytes and gigabytes. I even have a terabyte hard drive on my computer.. So, is there anything after that? No, I am sorry to say my geeky arthropod collector, a Trilobite does not fit the bill. After doing some research I found out that there is many other “larger measurments of bytes”. After the terabyte, you have the petebyte, exabyte, zettabyte, and the king of all bytes….the yottabyte. How big is the yottabyte, ya gotta ask? It is estimated to be 10 to the 24th power. Here’s how it looks. 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes. So how big is a megabyte (the one we are used to dealing with)? It is 10 to the 6th power. 1,000,000 bytes. To put this in perspective a CD can hold 700 megabytes. Now you have to admit, whether it be a Trilobyte, or Guy’s Big Bite on Food TV, the yottabyte, gotta lotta bytes!
