Just how much data can we store online?

Cringely reckons there's going to be an Energy Crisis surrounding free storage space on the net. If his figures are right (I have no reason to distrust them), a rethink may be order, or quantum computing (had to link to that one, cos of the cat. I love that example) and storage better be ready real soon now.
