"If all of the electricity you used in your lifetime was nuclear, the amount of waste that would be added up would fit in a Coke can." That's from Steward Brand. I was curious about that fact after reading your post, so poked around on Google and found his TED speech here, with interactive transcript.

When I hear "giant squid," I think of a... giant squid. Per Wikipedia: "Giant squid can grow to a tremendous size: recent estimates put the maximum size at 13 metres (43 ft) for females and 10 metres (33 ft) for males from caudal fin to the tip of the two long tentacles (second only to the colossal squid at an estimated 14 metres (46 ft), one of the largest living organisms)."

+ - Top 10 Internet Moments of the Decade->

Alcohol Fueled (603402) writes "From Napster to Wikipedia, to Google and Craigslist, the Internet has had its share of big moments. CNN has a chronological list of them, courtesy of the Webby Awards. The events are not listed by any sense of importance because David-Michel Davies, the executive director of the Webby Awards, says "that depends on who you are and what you're interested in." What are some other Internet moments of the decade that you'd consider important, that perhaps didn't make their list?"
