I actually think you are right. Bytes, and all its derivatives, are a way to describe something which doesn't physically exist. It's all relative. 10 MB of wave audio could be 1 minute long, while 10 MB of text can fill several thousand pages. In reality, neither the text or audio exists; it's interpreted, and recreated by your computer. Sure, it's stored physically somewhere on a hard drive, but is that really text? Is that truly the document you are looking at? No. All the stuff on the internet is the representative form of a virtual object. That virtual object takes no space.

hee hee, that would be cool. In Digimon Tamers they gave a really good explaination of what digimon actually were. Rudimentary AI programs that eventually evolved into complex beings. (I think that's a neat concept)
i can image a real digital world, i can also imagine aol popups scaring the s~=t out of me every now and then, and lots of dialer programs trying to install inside you every time you go to a slightly ilegal site
