Well, you figure that a terabyte can hold roughly 1000 hours of standard video, and if 1 million people kept a video diary for 6 months, boom, there is an exabyte. Now if only Google could index video, then I could see the need. I think the amount of data that gets created seems to be expanding, and there's a need for storage space to fill it..
Rough estimates put the size of the internet at a yottabyte, and google is only processing 1/1000th of it in 6 hours, wow..
