Re: Eurid releases report on the growth of multilingualism on the Internet

link: www.eurid.eu/files/EURid_IDN_Report_2012.pdf

it's a good read actually.

It paints a bleak picture though. In summary it spells out that IDNs have a bunch of technical barriers that hamper adoption (browser, email, apps like facebook, poor registrar offerings.. all the usual stuff)

but then goes on to describe a paradox where awareness will only improve when these problems are resolved, and to resolve them, you need awareness.

The technical barriers will likely only be addressed when it is cost effective to do so, and that will only happen where there is demand, and demand will only come through awareness and adoption, and round and round you go again.
