China's Internet population reaches 485 million China's Internet population has risen to 485 million, but growth is slowing.
For the six months ended June, China's online population rose 6.1 percent, still strong but significantly lower than the 9.4 percent increase for the first six months of 2010.

In 2008, growth was 20.5 percent, and overall China has doubled their Internet population since 2007.

Total Chinese Internet penetration stands at just 36.2 percent, while the U.S. is at 77.3 percent and other nations have 90+ percent penetration.

With over 800 million Chinese still without Internet (or even computers in a lot of cases) there is still room for explosive growth in the nation, says the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC)

China needs to start mandating neutering and spaying PERIOD. Their population is irresponsibly out of control. Just like the Japs and their whaling/fishing, the Chinese feel they have the 'right' to litter this planet with "their ways". Screw that!

This from an article talking about slow migration to the internet? Mayhaps the spaying and neutering need to go about elsewhere?
