Growing in numbers

According to the egyptian government, Egypt now has more than 160,000 blogs.

A
report issued by the Information and Decision Making Center at the
cabinet council stated that the number of Egyptian blogs has reached
160,000 by last April, which represents 30.7% of the Arab blogs and
2.0% of the blogs throughout the world. Egyptian bloggers are more than
162,000, mostly 20- 30 years old.

2% of the world's blogs. Not too chabby for starting off with 30 blogs 4 years ago. Not too chabby at all! :)

    I expect nothing less from an angry population with a lot of time on its hands. Since the majority don’t drink or get laid writing would have to be the enxt best thing.

    Pretty good, I’d say — presuming we’re only looking at the numbers, not the quality. I’d like to see a breakdown of that stat by frequency of posting and by traffic…
