I’ve been caught: According to this story, “the storage industry’s two favorite professors have completed their annual look at data growth” and discovered that I personally am out of control.
The average North American consumes 11,916 sheets of paper each year compared to 7,280 sheets chewed up by European Union residents. The average U.S. Internet user also spends more than twice as much time online as do users in the rest of the world. The world average is 11.5 hours per month of online time.
I am tempted to list other things we consume more of in the U.S. than they do in the E.U., but I’ll stop before I really get out of control.
