so how much data was generated while we were talking?

A friend reminded me of this story last week, and it made me laugh.

A few months ago, I was talking to an engineer in a nearby cubicle.

Engineer: [describing his project which does some amazing stuff]

Me: "Wow, that's cool. How much data does that generate?"

Engineer: "X terabytes."

Me: [startled] "Woah!"

Engineer: "... per minute."

Haha! Gotta love volume of the non decibel. As well as the decibel.

its ok to generate so much data, but is anybody actually going to look into it?
