Witness One Second on the Internet

1-Second

Simply presented and staggering to behold, the site One Second on the Internet is our interwebs rec of the day. The site leads you in with the teaser: “In one second on the internet there are…” and then unfurls the internet before your eyes, revealing the sheer volume of internet activity that happens in a single second. Tweets tweeted, Skype calls initiated, e-mails sent, Dropbox files uploaded, Reddit votes cast… the numbers are more than a little mind-blowing. It’s wild to think about how so many of these products didn’t exist a decade ago, but are now so tightly and comfortably woven into our daily habits.

About Jenn

Jenn's first career aspiration was to be a dinosaur. After her kindergarten teacher informed her that couldn't happen, she decided she would be the next best thing: a writer. Aside from writing, Jenn loves chambray shirts, all cacti, and good typography.
