I last shared this on Google+ two years ago. It was time to share it again How long is a billionth of a second? 11.8 inches long.
(that’s a nanosecond)
How long is a microsecond?
984 feet long.
So if you are ever doing programming and you are wasting microseconds (ms) – you’ll know just how much you’re wasting.
These aren’t theoretical – this is reality. And it’s pretty cool.
