Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about 0.000000000000000000002 times as much as All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded)
In other words, 597 bits is 0.0000000000000000000015 times the amount of All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded), and the amount of All Spoken Words in Human History (recorded) is 670,000,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 times that amount.
(2003 figures) (assumes 16 Khz, 16-bit mono recording)
Criticizing a 2002 estimate of 46,000,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 bits, linguist and University of Pennsylvania professor Mark Liberman asserted that it would actually require 399,999,999,999,999,966,445,568.00000000000000000000000000 bits to house a recording of all speech in human history, even at a relatively low level of quality. For the purposes of his calculations, Liberman estimated the total duration of such a project to include 416,390,367 years of continuous audio.
It's about 0.000000000000000010 times as much as The Internet
In other words, 597 bits is 0.0000000000000000100 times the amount of The Internet, and the amount of The Internet is 100,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000 times that amount.
(2005 figures) (estimated)
Although the Internet is continuously changing, a 2005 estimate by Google CEO Eric Schmidt was that the total amount of data on the Internet would measure about 40,000,000,000,000,000,000.0000000000000000000000 bits. An estimated 1 trillion web pages are published on the Internet, excluding photos, videos, and music content.
