Cool visualisation of broadband penetration growth across the world

Geeky but cool, and you can play with the sliders to see progress unravel over time here.

4 million to over 400 million broadband subscribers in 10 years. What a difference that has made to our experience of digital as consumers. What a difference that has made to how we communicate.

Someone said to me recently that our generation wouldn't have much to show for themselves. No big wow inventions like the combustion engine.  Well, I would beg to differ.  We have a lot to thank Tim Berners-Lee for. The internet may not be perfect but it's evolving all the time and I can't imagine life without accesss to it's rich fount of information and entertainment.
