FTA: The bottom line: Getty Images, which was just sold to Carlyle Group at a value of $3.3 billion, has grown by feeding the Web's insatiable desire for pictures.

Wanna amend that headline Subby?

Getty paired with a functional search algorithm? I'm okay with this.

so, getty's 80 million images is worth 3.3 Instagrams. By this math, there should be 24,242,242 photos in Instagram.

(80 million pictures)*(a picture is worth 1000 words)=80 billion words

($3.3 billion)/(80 billion words) = $0.04125/word or 4.125 cents/word

I think he got the math , he's just pointing out my brain fat-fingered and typed in Google when it was the Carlye group that actually bought them. Still happy people got the joke.

I'd have liked it if it was Google. but I guess that would make the revenue stream difficult to figure out. I don't know how much Blogger is worth to Google, certainly not $3.3 billion to provide images for bloggers to use,

The Carlyle Group? **checks Wikipedia** Carlyle is a major holder of a company called Synagro, a controvercial company that spreads marginally treated human waste, also known as sludge, on farm fields to grow food for the American dinner plate.[5][6] Synagro representatives were caught redhanded in an FBI sting for bribing public officials, yet Carlyle and Synagro escaped prosecution.

Yeah - thought that was them.
