Food for thought. END

PS: Jawa points to some interesting points of data with images worth highlighting. First, number of sites (where approx. 200 mn are regularly active):

Likewise, it is noted by tekeye that “[d]espite there being over 1.5 billion websites only a few hundred dominate the Internet. Less than 1 million, or 0.1%, account for over 50% of web traffic. To get an idea on how much such a small percentage of the total websites dominate look at The Internet Map.”

Jawa thanks, clipped and added two charts to the OP. Notice, the patterns of growth and dominance. I suspect, you slice off the top 1/10 of 1% and you see the "old" net still there. But people depend on the new esp Google [90% of all searches, next nearest Bing at 2%] to reach the old. Unless they keep their own bookmarks. If we are to address a battle we need to map the terrain. KF kairosfocus
