The creation of new information decreases the level of entropy in the world. A 2003 study by UC Berkeley, School of Information Management, indicates that each year 5 exabytes of new information is created in the world. This includes information stored on paper, film, magnetic and optical media. If information flows through electronic media are included, i.e. telephone, radio, TV and Internet, this total rises to 23 exabytes of new data created each year. An exabyte is equal to 1,000 petabytes, or 1 million terabytes, or 1 billion gigabytes. 23 exabytes is equivalent to almost 3.5 gigabytes for every person on the face of the earth. According to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the overall level of entropy must increase over time, and therefore the decrease in entropy due to information creation should be offset by corresponding increases. I indicated in my paper that these offsets could be on a macro level such as accelerating expansion of the universe, or a micro level such as through quantum teleportation of the information into a simulated universe. However, the recent devastation wrought by hurricanes Katrina and Ophelia suggests the theory that the offsets could actually be taking place through natural disasters. If this is true, then it raises the intriguing possibility that some of the world's most powerful new supercomputers, which were designed for weather simulation may, through the sheer volume of new information they create, actually be contributing to the phenomena that they are modelling.
