Cyndy of Industry standard laments the Web is very US Centric. I think she is more ignorant than wrong.
Granted most startups and services cater to US users initially since they are early adopters and have relatively good broadband adoption.
1. She’s ignorant of the many South Korean and Chinese companies that exclusively to their local audiences.
2. The number of Internet users with broadband in China, Korea and Japan exceeds that of US.
3. The Internet traffic now has begun to bypass the US.
It maybe that Europe is largely focusing more on the mobile web and hence their participation in the Web might be less (which I doubt), but Asia is alive and kicking.
