Map of the Internet



I saw this on Joshua's Mac a couple of nights ago when I was laxing out. I had to put it on my blog. I have some issues with it. It doesn't show Bebo on it, which is one of the top 3 social networking sites in New Zealand, and it doesn't show the unseen web (academic journals etc) this should be displaced as a reef underwater somewhere on the screen. Anyway i thought it was quite cool, it will be interesting to see what shape it takes in five years time!

Yep, xkcd is most excellent.

The original is here, btw, for those who have not already seen it (click the image for a higher resolution version).

Also, the actual map of the (IPv4) Internet is this one.
