IDN Traffic a Reality in Japan

Link is below but a little slow, so I post extract from James Seng on the success of Tokyo University IDN:

Nakayama-sensei from Tokyo University shared a very pleasant story with me this morning.

They runs a popular site called Live Eclipse that keeps track of eclipse schedule. The site also have an Japanese IDN 日食中継.jp which they publise concurrently.

On the last eclipse, 9th April, they have over 2m hits in a single day. The interesting part is 15.8%, or over 400k of the hits comes from the IDN name 日食中継.jp. This is very surprising because the data we have in the past shows very little (less then 1%) utilization of IDN. This maybe the coming of age for IDN

(Please bear in mind that 15.8% resolution is despite the fact that IE still don't have IDN support - Michel told me it will be in IE 6 beta 2 ie in IE 7 release.)

It would seem that this was a properly run experiment with the Japanese Registry.

Use Google Language Tool to translate page.

It would seem that the Japanese see this as irrefutable proof of the the validity of the IDN concept.

Re: IDN Traffic a Reality in Japan

Interesting. Do you think this early growth is because university website visitors might be more clued-up than your average Joe?
