Why “Screenshotting” Is No Longer a Useful Concept or Phrase.


@edsu Today's computer screens update 60 times per second. Storing all the information a government worker produces on a typical government office monitor (1366x768 pixels, 16 bit color depth) multiplied with the number of 1'728'000 frames produced during an 8 hour work day would yield 3.30TiB of screen data—again: for a single worker, on a single day. This is, I'm afraid, unsustainable.
