    This is the information to get the answer-- All Abuzz about Information Hosting more than 7 billion in population, our world is "abuzz" with data and information. Here is a statistic to ponder: Without including any existing information in libraries, archives, or databases, people and computers will generate more than two Zettabytes (ZB) -- that's more than two trillion Gigabytes of data created in 2012 alone! 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes Two frames of reference: The capacity of the iPhone 5 top-of-the-line-model is a mere 64GB Two ZB is enough disk (space) to hold more than two trillion episodes of the CBS TV show, The Big Bang Theory. Out of this world! The vastness of these numbers tells you that there has been, and always will be, a lot of stuff out there. That is good news for the state of research, right? How about a definite "maybe" -- but only if you understand how information literacy skills work to your advantage. Before you get started doing research, you will see in the example below that not all stuff is created equally.
