Map of the Internet

Map of the Internet (1)

This map is on the wall of the Stanford University Computer Science building in Palo Alto, California. The explanation says:
This map depicts the shortest outgoing routes from a test computer at Lumeta headquarters in Somerset, New Jersey, to each of over 320,000 registered or announced nets on the Internet. Each end node can represent a handful of computers on a small network or perhaps a large company with hundreds of thousands of hosts. Each intermediate node is a router.

More info, fascinating if you're a geek like me, can be found at
