The Internet Weighs About as Much as a Strawberry

The-InternetHave you ever wondered how much the Internet weighs? Using some very rough maths, it’s been estimated that the internet weighs about the same as a strawberry.
The weight of all the electrons in motion that make up the internet at any one moment is equivalent to 50 grams, according to Vsauce, a YouTube channel.

Using Einstein’s E=mc² formula, which states that energy and mass are directly related, Professor John Kubiatowicz, a computer scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, calculated that filling a 4GB Kindle to its storage limit would increase its weight by a billionth of a billionth of a gram, or 0.000000000000000001g.

You lied to us, IT Crowd!
