ICT - Ten Years After The Dotcom Boom

The March 2010 issue of Wired Magazine has an interesting piece titled 10 Years After: A Look Back at the Dotcom Boom and Bust. Here's some striking numbers comparing today to ten years ago:

Then (2000)
Now (2010)
ECommerce Sales (Annual)
$19.5 Billion
$156 Billion
Hard Drive Storage (per GB)
Bandwidth for Streaming Video (per GB)
Web Storage (monthly, per GB)
Domain Registration (per year)
Hosting (monthly per MB)
24-pack of Red Bull

Note: Numbers have been adjusted for inflation.

This is only a tiny sample of what is in the March issue - it brings back a lot of memories. Things certainly have changed lots!
