hv@cix.compulink.co.uk (Hugo van der Sanden):
  To the best of my knowledge, the House of Commons decided to adopt the
  US definition of billion quite a while ago - around 1970? - since which
  it has been official government policy.

dik@cwi.nl (Dik T. Winter):
  The interesting thing about all this is that originally the French used
  billion to indicate 10^9, while much of the remainder of Europe used
  billion to indicate 10^12.  I think the Americans have their usage from
  the French.  And the French switched to common European usage in 1948.

gonzo@ing.puc.cl (Gonzalo Diethelm):
  Other countries (such as Chile, my own, and I think
  most of Latin America) use billion to mean 10^12, trillion to mean
  10^18, etc. What is the usage distribution over the world population,
  anyway?
