This in from Feministing and The Christian Science Monitor:

China has the highest number of internet users in the world and many of them are "internet addicts"... China has the world's largest number of Internet users - 290 million and counting, with 70 percent under the age of 30. And a recent survey of Internet use by global market information group TNS found that Chinese spend the highest proportion of their leisure time online - 44 percent - out of users in 16 countries.
SURPRISE. Actually, no, this isn't surprising, since China is the country with the greatest population in the world. I'm kind of skeptical of this statment, because what counts as leisure anyway? Isn't that something that is culturally determined and varying from place to place? Who gathers these facts? The missionaries with a history of cultural ignorance? Anyway. Maybe I should warn my grandparents - they're clearly at a great risk, with their dial-up and all. Don't read too many e-mails, grandpa!
