More And More Americans Surfing The Internet

from the look-at-'em-go dept

alex was the first of a few to write in about a new study showing that over 200 million Americans now have internet access - making it just about 3/4 of the US population. The article also points out that more women than men are surfing, but, honestly, the numbers are pretty close.

    Surfing the Internet

    I'm way to old to surf any more, but dag nabbit this new fangled Internet sure sounds interesting. Maybe some young whiz kid could invent a wadding pool, or maybe just a hot towel way to use the Internet pool. If so, count me there!

    O.F.

    About 300M Americans

    Okay, I admit I am being a bit picky, but wouldn't that be coser to 2/3 of Americans?

    Should say "3/4 of population above school age" or something similar since if you subtract out young kids, you get the 75% (which makes more sense that "all Americans" anyway).
    Yeah, I obviously have too much free time today
