Artist Rob Vargas created this graphic using data from a study by the University of California at San Diego. Americans consume 3.6 zettabytes a day. A zettabyte is one billion trillion bytes. That's a lot of LOLcats!

Am I reading the report/graphic wrong somehow? Is the graphic supposed to be a parody of the typical "geek" who visits sites like Neatorama Fast Company? (I'm sure we skew higher than the average) I went to the original posting site, Fast Company, and saw no clarification. Any thoughts before I spring this on my students?
I really hope this was some sort of weird attempt at humor.
