Random factoid of the day

Google has indexed around 8 billion web pages, total.

The National Archives in Washington D.C. archives around 100 million paper pages per year.

Nearly 15 trillion copies are produced on copiers, printers, and multi-function machines per year.

Update 4/20/05: fixed Google stat from 8 million to 8 billion (what’s a few orders of magnitude among friends?) and added copier stat. (Thanks to Mort & Beemer for keeping me honest.)
