Not really. There are a couple of developed nations that still have a high birth rate which shows that reduced fertility is not an automatic byproduct of developmnt. The current UN forecast is 11 billion in the early 22nd century. I think mother nature will have something to say about that.

I have several VMs on my system that each need at least a half TB to be useful (better a full TB.) A local cache of our SVN repo is again a couple 100 GB. Next, backups of my other systems, each a couple 100 GB at least. Next, a mirror of my server at work - nearly another TB or so. And a couple movie downloads that I haven't watched yet. Voila, over 5TB.
