104 bits is about one-two-hundredth as much as a Page of Text
In other words, it's 0.005 times the amount of a Page of Text, and the amount of a Page of Text is 190 times that amount.
(50 lines, 50 characters per line, ASCII encoding)
A 50-character-per-line, 50-line page of Latin alphabet text requires 20,000 bits when digitally represented. The Google Books project, which has produced hundreds of millions of pages of digital text, used a robotic device to digitize over eight million titles at a rate of about 1,000 pages per second.
