International interest in Sustainable Penang: New Mobility Agenda

For an idea of where “Sustainable Penang” is being read in Malaysia (in all four languages), have a look at the following map which records the location of readers across Malaysia who have signed into the site in the last three days.

From an international perspective the world reader map looks like this:

That is quite a pattern . . .  surprising I would say.

Finally the following leaves us with an interesting question to which I do not know the answer: namely why are there almost as many reader hits coming in from Germany as Malaysia, and then why so much interest from Romania, Switzerland, Italy, etc. That question must have some sort of answer but for now at least I do know have the answer.

I invite our readers to comment and offer their explanations for this unexpected wave of interest.
