Internet year : Java Glossary


Internet year
Technology changes so quickly on the Internet, you might get 7 to 10 times the usual rate of change. Thus one calendar year is 7 to 10 Internet years, much the way one calendar year is 7 dog years. So one Internet year elapses every 40 to 50 days. It is a measure of the time elapsed for the amount of change you might expect in other areas of technology within a year. This is why it does not have a fixed length or a precisely defined value.
