Space quest - storage leads the information revolution

Peter Cochrane makes some interesting observations here about the storage market. We all know it has transformed significantly, but the scale is astounding. 1MB 35 years ago cost 1000GBP, and today it costs less than 1p. The implications are profound and they still have some yardage... all that space to fill...

He also comments on the need for speedy networks to complement this explosion in storage. I hadn't really considered storage as a compelling driver for network speed, but seen this way, it is obvious that there is a huge disparity in the speed of improvement in these technologies.
