    Woah - I actually had to go look that up.  The first survey found 18,000 sites, but that was way back in 1995, not 2005.

    I believe she meant 1995...but it's hard to tell.  The facts are a little inconsistant from survey to survey.  So much information.

    I know...it's amazing isn't it?  According to some of the figures my web design class studied, between 1000 - 10,000 new websites are created every day.  Then again, another 1000 - 2000 go offline at the same time.  I think I'll take another web design course.  It couldn't hurt.  The web has certainly come a long way.

    Speaking of which, may I have your permission to make you a fansite?  I don't want to do it without your consent first.

    Let's see, I think I visited about 1000 websites in 1995, so that's about 5.5% of all websites that were out there at that time. That actually included visiting sites using Gopher though.

    It would take me a long time to reach that percentage now.
