How big is the internet?

Have you ever stopped to think about how big the Internet is? Are you like me, and for some reason you thought its size was infinite, and nothing could hold it back?  Well, we were both wrong.  The internet has actually outgrown its current home, and like a family with a lot of kids, it’s moving to a new home.

Don’t worry, the world of the internet won’t stop, you’ll still be able to access all of the Facebooks, Googles, blogs (thank you!) and email sites out there, but we may have to adapt a little bit in how we get there.  It’s really just a few more numbers added on to an IP address.  But were you like me when you heard the news, and were a little shocked?  I seriously thought there was no limit to the internet as we know it today. Oh well, I can’t be right all the time.

  1. It’s a bit like when we started having to put the area code in all phone numbers. I remember being in the GTA when that started back in the ’90s, and that was a BIG change. How could there not be enough phone numbers?! And now how many of us only think in 10 digits?
