GUEST,Bee Where Have All The Americans gone? (120* d) RE: Where Have All The Americans gone? 11 Oct 06


My pet theory, Jerry, is that geography and population size play a big part. From this site: http://www.mongabay.com/igapo/world_statistics_by_area.htm

Area (sq. km.) of US = 9,629,091 UK = 244,820

Populations are UK app. 60 million, US app. 300 million

Folkie people in the UK are a lot more likely to be close to events and to other folkies, and a lot more likely to know a larger portion of the folk scene because it is no where near as scattered over the landscape. Therefore they are more likely to find out about the same music websites.

Canada's area is lited as 9,976,140 sq. km., but our population is only 32 million. We are far apart, but more likely to know of each other.
