520 million is a big number

I read on Tom Peters’ blog that “We write the equivalent of 520 million books every day on social media and email.”

We are writing:

154.6 billion emails
400 million tweets
16 billion words on Facebook
52 TRILLION words on email and social media*
(*equivalent to 520 million books)

We offer our ideas, good and bad and argue about it.

This process has changed the way we think. Just as we now live in public, so do we think in public.

Or, as Clay Shirkey would say, we live in an “Publish, then Edit” society.

What are you publishing today?
