  1. According to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the Internet will claim home to two billion users by the end of this year. That's nearly a third of the world's total population (currently estimated at about 6.9 billion) converging on one digital medium. The number of people online has doubled over the last five years, and the organization estimates that more than 226 million people joined the party in 2010 alone.

  2. Does that mean we will run out of ipv4 addresses sooner than we thought?

    No, it just means we will soon run out of porn.

    Correct my logic if you will, but wouldn't more users = more demand = more porn?

    Well since we haven't made the number a majority we must be racist or something.

    Well it would be more appropriate in this way:

    more users = more demand = more porn = more money for porn industry

    Agree with above. Now correct my logic if you think I'm wrong:

    More Internet Users + More Porn = More Websites

    It's a good time to be a web developer.

    No, look at it this way:

    More porn stars BROWSING the web instead of working + More demand + Less supply = Less porn. I mean, there's only so much porn. :)

    Lol, who am I kidding. I was just doing some casual trolling.

    Basically everyone from Mathew and later, agree that this growth is driven by porn; which is a weird conclusion.

    You obviously do not understand what the internet is for!
