HOW MUCH INFORMATION?

How much do you know?

The University of California, Berkley School of Information Managment Systems has conduct research since 1999 to determine how much new information is created each year.

Second, with so much information being created every year, how do amateur and underfunded scientists stay on top of it all? With all this information out there, how do those same scientists get their results out to the world? Just a couple of thoughts.
