*Silly Season Filler

It’s not like there is anything interesting to post about right now. Yahoo and Microsoft decide cooperate while Facebook is expanding its search function; no big news. Google’s new search algorithm [try the German version here] seems to work just fine, but from what I’ve seen up to now the change won’t affect the topic of keyword advertising.

So, to make sure the PageRank of my blog doesn’t plunge until there are news worth blogging about (e.g. General Advocate’s opinion on the French Google Adwords cases is expected for the 22nd of September), here are some thrilling facts… which might help to explain why lawmakers managed to draft decent laws to deal with automotive issues ,but seem to be a bit behind when it comes to IT-related issues:

it took 55 years for the automobile to spread to one-quarter of the U.S. population. It took 35 years for the telephone to do the same thing. The personal computer accomplished the same level of market penetration in 16 years, 13 years for the cell phone and only 7 years for the Internet(Council of Competiveness, Innovate America, 2004)

in case you are more of a “graphic person” there is also a very nice chart for you (they don’t mention their sources, but well … at least it looks good :)
