Of course, the USA, UK, Canada and Australia all speak English as a first language - that means every user from the tech guys to the kid at home doing some school project, pretty much, will be speaking English all day.

I know that a lot of business people in Asia, South America and Europe will also have a great understanding of the English language, but perhaps not as many occasional users, and perhaps they wouldn't automatically visit a predominantly English speaking website.

I know there's one section on ME for every other language on the planet, but it's bound to have a bearing on numbers from these countries.

Perhaps someone should start a Monsiour Excel or a Herr Excel, etc. I could go on.

There is an interesting article in July 2008 issue of WIRED magazine on Chinglish (Chinese English) and Singlish (Singaporean English).
WIRED mag said:
By 2020, native English speakers will make up only 15 percent of the estimated 2 billion people who will be using or learning the language.
Normally those terms are used as pejorative terms for poor translations. But WIRED used them as valid names for new blends / evolutions of English, somewhat akin to Latin being the mother tongue of French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese & Romanian.

Well, I just added myself to the map. I gave my work place, not home though. I am sure the five miles won't make that much of a difference!

I did notice that if you don't move the map from its starting position, and just zoom in about a third of the way, you zoom in on Timbuktu. Which must therefore be the centre of the world, not the middle of nowhere. A common misconception, it would seem.

If you ever come to Germany - let us drink some beer or wine. (y)

Does anyone know how to remove a marker from the map? My first try I was zoomed out too far.
