I was surprised that the TB figure wasn't higher, between HDs ( 25TB ) and DVDs, BRs and CDs ( about another 25TB ) I'm at one eighth of that..( less than .25 of a cubic metre of storage space, and most of that would be my optical discs, else my 50TB would all fit in a small laptop bag )..'course most of my access times are crap by comparison with theirs..;-)
But I don't have any of hellborine's stuff..,( I'm not making light of that..no doubt some of my stuff is also on there..sometimes you have to smile or cry..smiling is better for you :) ..Pinterest is like a rainstorm ..it will be over, eventually..meanwhile use an umbrella, and look to see what use you can put the water too..if any..
The hosting financials definitely demonstrate that unthought of players and models actually don't have a very high entry barrier to begin playing, many of the "backers" are betting on "something being viable/ exploitable with all that data", and if it isn't..they can lose sums which to many of them would not be any big deal..Particularly if they can continue to ( in the case of Pinterest* ) push the copyright problems on to their users / facilitators..
*youtube "bodyswerve" the same problem, and pass the ball / buck in basically the same way to their users / facilitators..
