Flat Statistics

I've been listening to the audio book, The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman. Pretty thought-provoking, and an interesting exercise to be reading that and The Next Christendom simultaneously. Anyway, one of the amazing statistics that Friedman cites in his book is this:

Google now performs 1 billion searches per day
Only one third of those searches originate in the United States
Only one half of all searches are performed in English

Whew! There's big world out there, and apparently that world is pretty tech-savvy.
