Sounds like McDonalds. The Internet has hit the one billion mark. Biggest player is China. Heres the line up, courtesy of Comscore. HT: thenextweb.

Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Help me Andrew. One billion peops?
    Is the drama to emphasize the Internet’s communication/social networking power, or to pop a cork on a bottle of cyber champagne?
    Just kidding. I thought it would be more than a billion, but I guess I should get my groove on and be more excited.
    Wired Magazine suggests the high data flowing on the net, along with our capacity to store terabytes of data from space, petri dishes and more, is making scientific and social “hypotheses” irrelevant.
    We can actually take in the data, analyze it, and skip the guess stage.
    Fascinating on a social level. The power in the wrong hands (marketing engines) could prove fatal.
    Thanks for the excitement on a Monday.

  • I need to convert my posts to Chinese. Then again, the traffic can’t be measured because of gov’t regulations. English, it is.

  • yes – funny also that the bulk of the emerging church online discussions seem to take place in only 3 of the countries listed above (US, UK, Canada).
    gives us a bit of perspective and shows that we probably need to work to make the conversation more global and (with countries like China, India and Brazil listed), less western.

  • i try to put links to the other countries on this blog, especially when we have just met in person, but since they blog in their own language, its more of a respectful nod than a link to resources.
    and to be honest, i tend to favor international bloggers who blog in English so my blog links are biased.
    but thanks for bringing this up. its a huge world out there and much bigger than our countries and our language.
