The Exploding Internet 2008

From the German website Telepolis and blogger Harald Taglinger we get The Internet in figures, a blog entry whose main attraction is its link to a very informative, data-filled (and English-language) map of the world-wide Internet as of last year. I’ll cut out the middleman for you: a thumbnail is below, which you can click to enlarge in a separate window/tab:


Among the points Taglinger picks out for mention in his accompanying text: P2P takes up 25% of global Internet traffic (or did in 2008; it might be an even-higher percentage now); India + Japan + China already make up about one-third of the world’s Internet users; and Portuguese (because of Brazil) is coming on strong as a website-language, already surpassing German and gaining on Japanese.
