The Exploding Internet

New Scientist has a number of visualizations that illustrate the internet explosion since 2002.   Here’s an example of internet users by country in 2002 and then in 2008.


Exploding Internet 2002

versus…

Exploding Internet 2008

Look at the growth in China and India… and still at a relatively low penetration of each country’s population.   I think it would be interesting to see the same comparison based on mobile internet use. 

Just imagine what this mapping looks like in 10 years with a 90%+ penetration of the US, 50%+ penetration of China/India and an explosion of new web, voice, social and mobile innovations over that time.
