I’ve been on a rant tonight via twitter exclaiming how fast life is moving by. I’ve been blogging for 7 years, out of college for 5 years, business owner for 3 years, and my little girl turns 2 in June. I’ve been busy.
During this rant, I’ve questioned how long an internet year is. So, I did what any person would do who needs an answer, GOOGLE. This is what I’ve found:
Autos and the web have a lot in common. And, by comparing the two, this guy seems to think an internet year is roughly 4.7 years.
If this is the case, then I’ve been blogging on the internet for 33 years. Clearly, I should be thinking about retirement now.

Some of us have been around much much much longer. I was using the “internet” when it was under 100 computers. Damn, I feel old.
My first internettes account was on Prodigy. I miss Prodigy.
I probably don’t look that much older than you and my GRANDDAUGHTER is two. Rejoice that you’re not me.
the older I get, the faster the years seem to go by. Good to see you around @kelkun
Probably back to trading next week. Stopped trading, market goes up two months straight. Gaaaahh….
You are all class, RC.
Four phases of life:
1) birth and education
4) the box
You’re not ready for phase 3 yet, I hope. We still need you.
another way to compare it would be to look at the speed of publishing. The amount of web pages vs the amount of books.
I’d imagine an internet year on that level is much faster. Something like 1T web pages or something.
Or you could look at the processing speed which doubles every 2 years and compare that to the time anything else “doubled” in production power.
