Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Usenet and More..

The Usenet is Here to Stay

Many of the modern day web heads and WEB 2.0 types have speculated that the Usenet is shrinking and won’t last; one, because the Usenet has been around a very long time and two, because there are only a select few people who possess the knowledge and expertise to use the Usenet and thus very few people use it today. While it is true that the Usenet has been around since 1979 and it is also true that Usenet users are usually geekier than most, the Usenet newsfeed and Usenet user base continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future. Taking a look at the figures below, you will notice that the Usenet newsfeed continues to grow at an extraordinary rate of 10 terabytes of data per day. Now nearing a staggering total of nearly 900 petabytes of storage on the entire Usenet, the Usenet is clearly the behemoth content store of the internet.
