Apparently, webboar.com is collecting information from the language metadata from websites.  It only seems to collect information from websites when requested to do so.  It has a spider that uses a queue to crawl new sites.

This result is skewed in favor of English-speaking countries as the form to add websites is in English only.  It would be an interesting enhancement to create the form in many different languages.
