The municipal elections in Denmark last week made the number of visits to danish websites explode, hitting an all time high. With more than 42 mio. user sessions on the top 20 danish sites, the Danish Internet Index (DIX) climbed to an index of 416.
More than 10 years ago I graduated in political science with a master thesis on the delopment of democracy. And though its a long time ago, it still warms my heart to see how computers can help democracy and political participation.
Have a look at the Danish Internet Index (conducted by TNS Gallup for my organization, FDIM – the IAB Denmark) and see for yourself how trafic has grown week after week the past 5 years.
