Additional Information: This paper contests the commonly-made assumption that English not only is the dominant language of the Internet at present, but that its strength and presence will grow. Drawing on documentary data and published case studies, it shows how other languages will be proportionately more important due to an important characteristic of globalized technology, i.e. that it promotes both homogenisation and the heterogenisation and the growth of both the local and the global.
