3D animator Alvaro Gracia Montoya of MetaBallStudios (previously) visualized the space that bytes on the Internet would occupy if they were imagined to be 1mm³. For example, using this ratio, a 100 MB would be smaller than a typical soda can, while 1 PB (Petabyte) would be taller than the Statue of Liberty. All information on the internet in 2001 would be represented by 1 EB Exabyte and one ZB (Zettabyte) in 2020. 1 YB (Yottabyte) of information would cover the better part of North America.
