Have you ever wondered how much data you actually consume in a week’s time? For me I would say that it varies based on that week’s tasks. For example if I need to test a new application I may have to download multiple DVD ISOs. Other weeks the largest thing I may download is the menu to the local pizza place. However I have a feeling that my data footprint is larger than I think.
Cisco came up with a way to determine what your digital footprint looks like. It is a short survey that asks you around 20 questions. While I found it to be interesting it seemed to focus mainly on social media and video. My results said that I am “beginning to discover the possibilities of today’s always-connected, data-driven world.” I have been active on the Internet for almost 20 years so I am not so sure how accurate this description is. However, some of the questions do make you think about the way you use the Internet. When you have a free minute hop over here and take the survey to see what Cisco thinks of your footprint.
