www.internetworldstats.com/stats – I didn’t know about this site, but do now.
Awesome animation slide? Can’t read it from where I am sitting.
Vanessa is cute…but 20 minutes in to the talk, I am still waiting to learn something new.
New! – http://www.google.com/insights/search/ – didn’t know about this.

I wonder if I can get copies of the slides.
Keywords ignore meta tags! Bummer…
