The World Wide Wow

How many emails do you read a day, or log onto Facebook? How many text messages do you send every day? Now multiply that the population of Kansas. Now, the United States. The rest of the world.
All of that digital information piles up. Now, researchers are figuring out ways to store it. Because if they don't, there may be a day when the Internet overloads.
As Dr. Ravi Pendse of Wichita State University said, "Somebody's uploading, somebody's downloading, and all this information has to be properly organized."
That's why two Wichita organizations now work together to save the world wide web. LSI Corp. and Wichita State University created the Center for Storage Networking Research last fall.
