1000 people, 30 countries

We have been protesting at 7 IBM Second Life islands for the last 6 hours! We are half way through our World protest, and it's definitely a World protest as workers have come from 30 countries, from China to the USA, from Sweden to Mauritania, New Zealand to Canada, Belgium to Spain....hundreds have signed the petition that has gone to top European IBM Management. And over 1000 have joined our mailing list.
But it's not over yet!
More statistics on exact number of protesters will be available at 7pm Rome, Italy time, in only two hours. Keep it up!!!

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
