If you had to move a petabyte of data, how would you do it?

Very interesting post in Jonathan Schwartz’s blog a few days ago. It is, and I’m willing take Jon’s word for it, faster to send a petabyte of data from San Francisco to Hong Kong by sailboat than over the Web, at least if you start and/or end with a consumer-grade DSL connection.
If you think about it, that’s why Netflix seems to have a pretty robust business model.
