The “Globalization” of Globalization

Statistics, as well as good record-keeping, can provide invaluable insights.

In the fourteen months since this website was launched, we have had over 14,000 visits, literally from all over the world. Naturally, the great majority of our website’s visitors come from major cities and nations capitals, mainly from the US and Canada, most countries in Europe (not only English speaking locations), developed Asia, China, India, Russia, Australia and New Zealand.

The information provided only refers to visits from those places, not about the nationality of the visitor who, in turn, might be a person on a business and/or vacation trip, on a temporary stay, or a relocated corporate officer of a multinational -or diplomat- for a long stay. Still, some of the visitors from unusual places must be local citizens of the country where the digital visits are originated, a true mosaic of geographic diversity across the whole planet.

All in all, the speed and extent at which the world geography is covered in a topic as globalization is truly astonishing; the universality of interest in the globalization topic, from the geographical perspective, is utterly evident; that is our experience. An unquestionable testimony on the strong interest in the dynamic, increasingly complex, yet fascinating world around us.
