Eleven percent of adults in the United States don’t use the Internet or email. A third of non-internet users (34%) did not go online because they had no interest in doing so or did not think the internet was relevant to their lives. Another 32% of non-users said the internet was too difficult to use. About 19% cited the expense of internet service or owning a computer. (Source: Interprep.com)

It’s not quite the World Wide Web — but the spiders of Aitoliko in Greece have made a good start. Spurred into overdrive by an explosion in the populations of insects they eat, thousands of little spiders in the western Greek town have shrouded coastal trees, bushes and low vegetation in thick webs, for a few hundred meters along the shoreline of Aitoliko, 250 kilometers west of Athens.
