Annette,

I find the CyberAtlas Statistics Tool Box a quick source for recent private 
sector studies of internet use.

Global Stats at:

I don't have any citations handy on the hyped stats of the early 90's, but the 
change in net growth was noted in WSJ: Julia Angwin, "E-Business: Has Growth of 
the Net Flattened?," Wall St. J., July 16, 2001, B1.
