    Very good summary by country – I am surprised as the results of New Zealand, but I’ve never been to that country.  I haven’t had time to read the other parts yet, but I will.

      A couple of points about NZ…

      Geography (and to a lesser degree the cost of bandwidth) mean that ‘local’ versions of otherwise well known sites are a viable proposition  (i.e. http://www.trademe.co.nz/ is as big if not bigger than ebay within NZ)

      Because of the population size and distribution, every one in a specialist field knows every one else in that field.

      By comparison, Australia is a much ‘wider’country; I don’t know how my experience extrapolates, but I follow many more people in my time zone (Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne) than in the other Australian time zones.
