I would like to know how data generation has evolved through the years.
My end goal would be to generate a logarithmic line plot showing the ridiculous increase in data generation. Please, does someone have a reference for this? I couldn't find any. It's OK if you point me to a book (available on eBay) that has this information.
Edit: when I talk about data generation, I talk about combined information generated by both machines and humans. I know this is not very well defined, but, for example, before the inventions of computers, you can consider books and movies.
