Article of the Week
The new ICANNWiki Infographics highlight important statistics related to the Internet and its usage. We create new infographics throughout the year, with our best infographics included in the ICANNWiki Quickie, which is given out at every ICANN conference. All of our infographics are freely available to share, so if you would like to share any of these or redistribute it, all we ask is for is attribution. Also, if you like the work and would like like to sponsor future infographics, get in touch with us!
