A wired continent

You know, this Internet thing just might be catching on. Zooknic has published some interesting and recent (2004) statistics on world Internet usage. It's not surprising to see Chile at the top of the heap, with over 25% of its populace online. Peru, Guyana and Uruguay are the runners up (13%-25%). I can see Uruguay, but Peru? Another thing: I wonder if these stats account for all the people who rent their Internet access by the hour at their local cabina?

That seems like a reasonable price to pay to preserve the acreage. $20.83/acre to prevent any changes to the area. Someone should create a sanctuary for the native habitat and prevent clearing of the land. The Nature Conservancy may be interessted. Their mission is:

"To preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive."

"Since 1951, we've been working with communities, businesses and people like you to protect nearly 117 million acres around the world."
